Crochet for Knitters – Slip Stitch

The Slip Stitch is the flattest of the crochet stitches, and is usually used for connecting and seaming.

The other Crochet for Knitters videos can be found here.

More Crochet for Knitters videos in the weeks to come!

Information on things you’ll see in this video:

The sweater on the mannequin is the Saroyan Scarf, designed by Liz Abinante. Free pattern and video tutorial.

The sweater I’m wearing is the Featherweight Cardigan.
I knit mine using Malabrigo Lace yarn.

The yarn I’m using for demonstration is Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick, and the size N metal crochet hook is Susan Bates.

  1. A little off subject BUT did you make the sweater you are wearing in this video? Is it the same one on the mannequin in the ‘Mattress Stitch” video? Can you give me any information about the pattern.

    Many thanks for all of your wonderful videos. They are all so helpful!

  4. i respectfully disagree about what slip stitch is used for. one can create beautiful and varied pieces of crocheted fabric using only slip stitch, or variations of slip stitch. it is dense, has a great feel , and is super easy. if you use a larger hook, slip stitch crochet has awesome lace potential.

    just doing a quick google search netted me this blog/page (not mine, nor am i related to them in any way) that i thought showed slip stitching really well.
