Slip Stitch

The slip stitch is one of the most basic stitches when it comes to crochet. Most crochet patterns use slip stitches to finish off a row of a project (joining stitches) or the project itself. If you find yourself struggling with this stitch I’ve included step-by-step instructions and an instructional video below!
