Crochet Materials to Make a Slip Stitch
To get started with the slip stitch tutorial (sl st) you will need to have some yarn and a crochet hook! I recommend getting a skein of either Caron Simply Soft or Vanna’s Choice for this tutorial. You will also need a crochet hook that is appropriate for the weight of yarn you are using. If you chose one of the yarns I mentioned above, you will need the 5.5mm / I-9 crochet hook.
Once you have these items in hand you are ready to begin crocheting the slip stitch!
