How do you rejoin yarn when crocheting?
You simply begin with a slip knot on the hook, then make the stitch called for in the pattern. You can use standing stitches anytime you would otherwise join the yarn with a slip stitch, then do a turning chain or build-up chain to reach the level of the current (or new) row of stitches.
What is the difference between a slip stitch and a single crochet?
A slip stitch is where you put your hook (with a stitch already on it) through the stitch, yarn over, pull through the stitch and the loop already on your hook. A single is where you put your (with a stitch already on it) through the stitch, yarn over, pull through the stitch, stop, yarn over, pull through both loops.
Does a slip stitch count as a stitch crochet?
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.
What is a joining stitch?
Decorative stitch used in sleeves, fronts of blouses and dresses. Attach two separate pieces of fabric together, leaving a little space in between.
