Crocheted slip stitches amaze me. They are simultaneously so simple yet so complex. Simple because it only takes a few quick movements to crochet one; they are included among the basic crochet stitches, and the most inexperienced of crocheters will be able to pick them up quickly. Complex because there are zillions of spectacular things you can do with the little old slip stitch, and exploring all the possibilities could lead you in dozens of interesting directions.

I hope you'll explore the slip stitch with me in more detail:

  • How to slip stitch in crochet -- Here you'll find instructions for crocheting a basic slip stitch, plus a whole bunch of links to tutorials for learning how to do fancier things with slip stitches.

  • Crocheting slip stitch fabrics -- You can crochet entire fabrics using slip stitch. This page gives you the details.
