Insert Hook Through Yarn

Tammy Powley
Slip stitch is a basic crochet stitch often used to finish off crocheted items or to connect crochet items together. It is pretty easy to master, and it can come in very handy when using yarn to make jewelry.

To get started with this stitch, you will need your choice of yarn and a crochet hook. For the photographs in this tutorial, I used two strands of red hard held together and crochet hook size is "I."

1. Like with all crochet, you first have to start with making some chain stitches.

2. Once you have some chain stitches made, insert the hook through one of the chain stitches.
