In order to begin your crochet work, you must begin with an initial loop on your hook.  In most cases, you will create the first loop on your hook using a slip knot.


To create a slip knot:

Slip Knot, Step 1


Step 1:  Create a loop with your yarn, making sure that the tail of the yarn is dangling behind your loop.


Slip Knot, Step 2


Step 2:  Insert the hook through the loop, moving under the tail and back out the loop.

Slip Knot, Step 3

Step 3:  Grab tail and pull to create slip knot on hook.
