I’ve recently shared a few tips on my blog which will help you to take your crochet skills to the next level! Today I’m delighted to bring you the invisible slip stitch. This technique is perfect for keeping your work nice and neat when working in a line and avoiding that unsightly diagonal line.
Take a look at the other techniques to take your skills to the next level:

MATERIALS AND TOOLS
The only things you’ll really need for this project is your selected yarn and your hook which you are using for your project.
The yarn that I have used in this sample is Paintbox Simply Chunky in Slate Grey
INVISIBLE SLIP STITCH
I have demonstrated this technique using UK Double Crochet/US Single Crochet
- Work your round
Work you double crochet round up to the last stitch of the round.
- Remove hook
Pull up some slack on your working loop and remove your crochet hook
- Insert hook
Insert your hook into the first stitch of the round from the wrong side to the right side.
- Loop yarn
Loop your working yarn back around the hook and pull on your tension to reduce the size of the loop
- Pull through
Pull the loop through the stitch and rotate your hook round to position. Your working yarn should now be under your hook from front to back.
- Double crochet
Pull working loop up slightly so that it’s slightly higher than a standard double crochet. Work a double crochet into the base of the chain.
Work around the round and repeat from step 1.
