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.

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.
