The slip stitch is the shortest of the basic stitches and is usually used as a technique than a stitch.
It is used to move the yarn along the row without adding any height and it’s also used to connect stitches when working in the round.
For those who learn better from watching videos, I’ve made a video tutorial to show you how to crochet the slip stitch.

Step 1: Start with a chain.
Step 2: Insert your hook in the 2nd chain from the hook, yarn over and pull a loop through.
Then pull that loop through the loop that was already on the hook
Your slip stitch is complete.
Step 3 (optional): To create a row of slip stitches, continue to crochet one in each chain.
You can use this stitch to create a knit-like row on your project or connect rounds and move the yarn across your work.
