A Slip Knot is the very first thing to do and  learn before one is able to crochet or make a chain.

There are lots of ways to make a slip knot. But what is important, is that it should be knotted well so that you can proceed with your foundation and it should not unravel easily.


1. Find a flat surface to lay down your yarn  and have a length enough to make the slip knot.  A working length of a yarn has two ends: 1. tail end and 2. ball end. ( See figure below).You are going to make a pretzel like shape with your yarn.

7. Make sure to have at least 2-3 inches dangling tail end from the slip knot to have an adequate length to weave through after your project is finish.

Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?
