Make a slip knot

To make a slip knot,


1. Loop the yarn as shown above.


2. Insert the hook into the centre of the loop catching the yarn with the hook and pulling it through to make a loop over the hook as above.


3. Gently pull the yarn to tighten the loop on the hook completing the slip knot.

NOTE: In crochet this loop on the hook is never counted as a stitch.

    Stupid question …how do YOU hold your yarn ?

    • Ruth says:

      Personally I hold my yarn next to the hook across my left forefinger and the yarn coming from the ball is wrapped loosely around my left little finger. I shall do a tutorial on that for you next.

        Thanks chick 🙂 I tried to comment on one of your posts but my computer kept freezing, I’d love a quick tutorial on the process of starting a new row, when you say miss first stitch where you put your hook in …does that make sense ??

      • Ruth says:

        Yes it makes perfect sense and will do tutorials on both those this week along with the turning chains needed for new rows for the different stitches.

        Woo Hoo it’s on par on having my own tutor 🙂
