Slip Knot

Arguably the first thing you need to learn and do when you begin to crochet, the slip knot can be notoriously tricky to remember how to do. Practice makes perfect and it’s super easy once you get the hang of it. In this video you’ll see two different ways to do the slip knot. Which do you like best?

    I have another way to do the slip knot. I wind the yarn over my fingers as if I was doing a magic circle. Insert my hook as for the MC and then pull the yarn and loop tight.

    How can I obtain two copies of this issue for
    two of my great grandaughters that want to
    learn to crochet? One lives close by me, the other one does not. Barbara H
