SLIP STITCH (SS) This stitch has no height, and is of­ten used to join rounds

Slip stitch is used to join a

01 length of chain into the round. Insert the hook from front to back into the first chain worked. Wrap the yarn around the hook (yrh), anti- clock­wise.

Pull the yarn through the

02 chain stitch, then the loop al­ready on the hook, to make a slip stitch. You can also work this into each stitch along a row to form a neat edg­ing.

WORK­ING IN ROWS Fol­low th­ese sim­ple rules to con­struct cro­chet fab­ric

The first row is made by

01 work­ing across the foun­da­tion chain from right to left. At the end of the chain or row, turn the work so the yarn com­ing from the ball is be­hind the hook.

For the next row, first make

02 the turn­ing chain for the stitch you’re about to work. Then, work the next stitch into the top of the stitches on your first row, miss­ing the first stitch.
