How to Crochet a Slip Stitch

While some crocheters may use slip stitches to add to the appearance of a project, they are more often used as helpful stitches.  Since they are so flat, slip stitches are commonly used for joining colors, joining two projects together, and ending rows.  When crocheting circles and other shapes where your row ends next to where you began, a slip stitch is often used to join the first and last stitches so that you are not left with a gap.  They are also used to make borders, so that the edges of a project look neater.  In the video below, you will see how to crochet a slip stitch, how slip stitches look compared to single crochet stitches, and how difficult it could be to try to crochet inside a slip stitch.
