How To Make A Slip Knot (3 ways) | How To Crochet


hey guys it’s Kristin so in today’s
video I’m gonna show you how to do three different slip knots now the slip knot
is very important to know because it’s the first thing you have to do with
every single crochet project I decided to show you three because if one doesn’t
work then you still have a couple others to choose from
now before we jump into the video if you liked it please give me a thumbs up it
really helps a lot and then don’t forget to subscribe if you want to see more and
you can hit this bell if you want to be alerted when I upload a new video with this first option you’re gonna use
four to six inches of yarn and then you’re gonna stick your pointer finger
out then wrap the shorter end in front of your finger and hold it there with
your thumb now grab the yarn from the back and wrap it around one more time
then pinch the two pieces of yarn with your middle finger and your thumb to
hold them in place now grab the arm that’s on the left and pull it over the
right then again the Arnon the left but now
pull it over your finger completely and just pull tight so let me show you how
to do that one more time you’re gonna stick your pointer finger out put the
yarn over your finger with the shorter end in the front and then hold it with
your thumb now grab the yarn in the back and wrap it around your finger one more
time you’ll then pinch the two pieces of yarn with your middle finger and your
thumb to hold them in place now grab the yarn that’s on the left and wrap it over
top of the one on the right and again grab the one on the left and pull it
completely off your finger and pull tight option two is how I do a slipknot so I’m
going to wrap it around my thumb and then pinch the base to make a loop so
again just wrap it around your thumb and pinch the base so now we have a loop and
you’re gonna take this shorter end and put it through the loop grab it with
your fingers and then pull that and the other yarn in the opposite direction to
pull tight so let me show you again one more time how to do that you’re going to
wrap it around your thumb and pinch the base to make a loop then we’re taking
the shorter piece of yarn and placing that through the loop that you just made
pinch it with your fingers and pull the two pieces of yarn hanging down in the
opposite direction to tighten it now on to option 3 this time you’re
gonna stick both your middle and your pointer finger out and you’re gonna wrap
the yarn around your fingers with the shorter end being in the front put your
thumb in the middle to hold it and now grab the yarn from the back pull it
forward and loop it back across the front of your fingers until you make an
X so now put your thumb in the middle of the X so it doesn’t move flip your
fingers around so it’s facing you and you should see two pieces of yarn
hanging down you’re then gonna grab your crochet hook and we’re gonna go under
the first one and hook the second one pull the second one back underneath the
first and gently wiggle your fingers out now all you have to do is grab the two
pieces yarn at the bottom and pull tight this loop will be much larger so you
will need to pull the two strands of yarn in opposite directions to tighten
it okay let me show you that one more time so you’re gonna stick your pointer
and middle finger out lay the yarn across with the shorter end in the front
then grab the yarn from the back and pull it forward and across to make an X
place your thumb in the middle to hold it in place and then turn your fingers
now you have the two yarns sticking down so you’re gonna grab your crochet hook
go under the first and hook the second pull the second one through and wiggle
your fingers out now you just have to pull the yarn in opposite directions to
tighten the knot alright guys so that’s it for today’s video

  1. That's a big help! Can you use it for knitting too? I don't know very much at all about knitting but when I watch it on YouTube they seem to start with some kind of a slip knot?

  2. Hey Kristin, you are awesome! I have been struggling with my tension when it comes to crochet. First, I was making my chain stich to tight. Then I used a larger size crochet hook and now its too loose. After watching your beginner videos, I feel confident that I can get it right. Thanks so much!

  3. Recently found and subscribed to your channel and so far I’m really liking your teaching, with hopes of learning from you.
    I understand to begin with, I should get all cotton yarn, but what thickness, please?? And of course use light colors to easily see my stitches better.
