How do you do an invisible slip stitch?

What’s an invisible join in crochet?

The invisible join is basically a “false” stitch that lies over the top of your beginning chain or your first standing stitch. It replaces this first stitch so that you do not end up with a sl st join (visible or not) and thus an extra stitch.

What is slip stitch in crochet?

The slip stitch is the shortest of all crochet stitches and is really more a technique than a stitch. Slip stitches are usually used to move yarn across a group of stitches without adding height, or they may be used to join work when working in rounds.

What is a false stitch?

Use a false stitch when you are continuing with the same colour. To make a false tr/dc (UK/US), pull up a long loop, a little taller than a normal stitch. Place a finger on the loop on the hook and hold it firmly while moving the hook under, and wrapping the long loop around the hook.

Does slip stitch count as a stitch?

For practice, crochet six chains loosely. When counting your chain stitches at the start of a pattern—which you must do very carefully before continuing—note that the loop on the crochet hook is never counted as a stitch and the starting slip knot is never counted as a stitch.

How do you change the color of a continuous round?

To make a standard colour change when working in continual rounds you are effectively changing colours mid-round. This is how it works: You would pull through the new colour on the last pull through of the stitch just before you want to change colour. Then you would simply continue working in rounds.

How do you crochet a continuous round without joining?

In crochet rounds with joins, you’ll work one round then join the last stitch to the beginning of the round with a slip stitch. For crochet rounds without joining, however, you’ll work the last crochet stitch then work the first stitch of the following round. There is no slip stitch to join the rounds.
