Back to Basics: The Slip Knot

Whether it be knitting or crochet you need to start with a slip knot to get the yarn onto your needle. To create one of these …..

1. Cross the yarn coming from the ball over the yarn end (tail) to form a circle.

2. Pop the circle you have just made over the yarn which is coming from the ball.

3. Pick up the yarn that lies under the middle of your circle with your needle and pull it through to form a loop.

4.Gradually tighten your loop to form the knot by pulling your yarn ends firmly.

Voila! A slip knot is made! Remember to make sure your completed slip knot can slide easily along your needle.
