The first thing to learn to start crocheting is how to tie a slip knot. A slip knot that easily slides back and forth will allow enough room to pull through yarn, yet have enough tension to keep your stitch even.
Check out this video where I show you five different ways to tie a slip knot:
Now remember, those are not the only way to tie a slip knot. If one of those didn’t work for you, do a search on YouTube and see what else is out there. There are a few things to remember:
- Find something you are comfortable with.
- Don’t be afraid to try different techniques.
- Have fun with it!
I hope that video helps you. Let me know what you think! Also get ready, because I will begin showing you how to make a chain AND be consistent next!
Until next time…
