How to Slip Stitch in Crochet

Updated: Oct 10, 2023

Learn how to crochet the slip stitch. The slip stitch (abbreviated ss) is a common crochet stitch. This stitch is very short but does a great job finishing off the edges of a piece. I use this on the edges of small washcloths, wings, or even just to add a splash of contrasting color.

Below are the directions for a small sample project.

  1. Begin by making a chain of 11 chain stitches (ch 11). The first 10 chain stitches make your foundation chain; the last 1 is your turning chain.

  2. Starting in the second chain from the hook: 10sc, ch, turn

  3. Starting in last sc: 10sc, ch, turn

  4. Repeat step three 3 more times.

  5. Starting in last sc: 10 slip stitch by placing your hook through the stitch, yarn over, and draw through both the stitch and the loop on the hook.

FASTENING OFF: After the last stitch, cut the yarn, leaving a 6-inch end. Draw the hook straight through pulling the cut yarn end completely through the stitch. Pull the 6-inch end to close.
