The video team at About.com recently posted a crochet slip knot video. I'm super excited about this video, because our hostess Yvonne does a great job of demonstrating several different ways to do a slip knot. This is something that's soooo easy to do, yet it's challenging to explain the process using only photos and words; I think the video is a great addition to our website.
If for some reason you have trouble viewing the video, or if you just want to take a close look at some photos, my slip knot photo tutorial is another helpful resource on the same topic.
If any of you have been using a plain old ordinary knot to begin your crochet projects, I implore you to stop doing that; a slip knot is a much better way to start off.
