The Crochet Slip Stitch (sl st)

About This Technique

The Slip Stitch is used for two main reasons; the less common reason can be to move the starting point of your work without adding bulk, while a more common reason would be to connect your work into the round. One way to describe it would be the crochet equivalent of glue for your fabric. It’s an essential technique, but an easy one to master.
