HOW TO TIE A SLIP KNOT πŸ’– Step by Step Slowly with Studio Knit


How to make a slip knot. Hello I’m Kristen
and welcome back to my channel STUDIO KNIT. Let’s take a really close and slow step-by-step look at how to create our slip knot to begin you will want to
unravel about 20 inches of yarn and at that point 20 inches in is where we will
create our slipknot I encourage you to just watch it once without my hands
getting in the way and then we can do it together the end of our yarn the yarn
tail will be on the left and the yarn ball will be on our right we’re starting
by making a loop so take the right side of the yarn and replacing it over and
then the yarn on the right that is attached to our yarn ball we are going
to make another loop that is going to go right through underneath from the bottom
the first loop that we made and then holding on to both strands of yarn
we simply cinch it into a slipknot and that becomes our first stitch in
knitting and if this knitting series has been helpful to you please like it up it
really helps me out okay so get your yarn let’s do this together with the
yarn in our right hand we’re going to make a loop and have the yarn go over
let’s try that one more time we’re simply taking our right hand and we’re
going to make a loop so that the yarn is over now hold it with your two fingers
there on your left and then we’re going to take the yarn that’s attached to the
ball and we’re going to make another loop that’s going to go from the bottom
up through the top of that loop hold on to it and then taking both strands of
yarn just lightly pull and we’ve created our Slip knot already and you’ll see it’s
a slipknot because it slips very easily unlike just a regular knot that’s rigid
this can slip larger or smaller so that it will be fitting snugly on to our
knitting needle to create the first stitch in knitting so we’re going to
undo all of that hard work and we’re going to do it again let’s do it up
close this time holding our yarn and our left and our right we’re going to take
our right hand and we’re going to make a loop by placing the yarn on top right
there and holding it securely with our thumb and finger on our left on the
right we’re going to make another loop and bring it from underneath up top hold
on to it and then we just pull lightly and we have created ours with knot again
say it with me the first stitch in knitting and then we just take our
knitting needle and secure our yarn right onto it with our slipknot check

  1. Thank you so so much for this! I just made my first slip knot after two days of trying to on my own and watching chunky blanket videos. I’m trying to make my first chunky blanket and the first step is a slip knot and I’ve been stuck! I’m so excited to move onto step two finally!!! 😊
