How to Do a Slip Stitch in Crochet

1 min read

As part of our GH Stitch Club, we’re showing beginners all the basic techniques for knitting and crocheting, including this step-by-step tutorial to help you learn how to make a slip stitch.

A slip stitch is a basic technique that can help you with any crochet project and can even be useful in knitting. It’s the shortest of all the stitches and is typically used to work in rounds or seam pieces together. If you saw the adorable granny square top or daisy square bag in our September 2021 issue, then you’ll notice that we used a slip stitch to seam the squares together.

How to Slip Stitch in Crochet

Step 1: Once you’ve found the spot in your project to begin your slip stitch (for the granny squares, this will be where your stitch marker was to make the first ring of the square), insert your hook into the first loop.

Step 2: Yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook.

Step 3: Yarn over again and pull through once more.
