SLIP STITCH CROCHET

The slip stitch is one of the most basic stitches in crochet and it is very versatile. It is used to close starting circles, to join granny squares and to do whole projects, wow!!

It can be done in the back loop of the stitch, the front loop or the classic way, which is in the space between stitches.

If you want a burst of color or to highlight anything on your project you will use this stitch.

Here are a few ways this stitch can be used:
