What is a Slip Knot?
The first term you hear in the crochet world is slip knot, everyone knows that most crochet patterns start with a slip knot. In this blog post, you will learn about the slip knot.
The slip knot is a type of knot you will use to attach the yarn to the crochet hook.
Making a slip knot is the first step in many crochet projects. It is made by tying a simple loop to the end of the yarn, then placing the loop on the crochet hook and pulling it tight.
Prepare your knitting yarn and crochet first, and we’ll explain each step of making slip knot to you with amazing photos and videos!
- First take the crochet hook in your right hand, wrap the yarn around your left finger first.
- Then take one end of the yarn and loop it around the crochet hook.
- Then, holding the end of the rope in your fingers, pass the rope you hold with the hook of the crochet hook through the ring formed.
Here is your knot ready!
You can also make this knot without using a crochet hook!
- First make a loop with the string, pass the middle part of the string through that loop, not the end.
- Then pass the crochet hook through the formed and knotted loop.
It’s that simple.
