It's that first step to get us started!
Yes, if you're knitting, the slip knot is the first stitch.
But unfortunately the first step can sometimes be either the most tricky one to overcome or the one that we forget so next time we need it we'll feel as if we're starting from scratch again.
And it's that step that we need to become a loved step, not one that's resisted or delayed because it's difficult.
Today I have three methods of making a slip knot for you to follow. One method may feel easier than another, so I suggest you try all three a few times each and pick which one seems more 'flowy' and rhythmic.
I make the slip knot on autopilot now. And struggled until about 12 years ago when I learned how to make a slip knot quickly and seamlessly. It was only a few years later that I understood why it made the process so simple and the stitch so supportive for the rest of my knitting.
As mentioned in today's video, this might be an ideal next watch.
There are some courses in the Knit With Hannah Academy which will also help. Take a look at the options below:
The Beginners First Knits Course, has step-by-step guidance to support you knitting your first three projects, a mini scarf, bracelet or bookmark, a smartphone case or purse, and a baby beanie.
