How To Crochet the Purl Slip Stitch

I love using super easy crochet stitches, and today I want to share this gorgeous crochet Purl Slip Stitch that is so much fun. It creates a fabric that looks a lot like knitting and it could make a great stitch for a wide variety of projects. If you’ve seen knit garter stitch or purl stitches, this appears so very similar! I could see this used with scarves, blankets and even kitchen ware like hot pads or washcloths. If you know how to make a chain and slip stitch, you will be able to learn this without any problems at all!

The pattern for the Purl Slip Stitch is simply a two row repeat:

Chain any number of stitches (Here, I’m using We Are Knitters Wool and a 12.0mm crochet hook)

Row 1 Slip stitch across the row

Row 2 Slip stitch in the back loop only across the row, chain 1, turn

Row 3 Slip stitch in the front loop only across the row, chain 1 turn

Repeat rows 2 and 3 for as long as you’d like your piece to measure.

Isn’t that easy?

There are a few things to keep in mind as you work this stitch. It does tend to get tight as you go, so make sure to crochet loosely and use a larger hook than you might normally use. Also, it’s very easy to miss the last stitch of the row as it gets a bit “buried”. Be sure you count your stitches on each row to ensure that you don’t have to frog all of your beautiful work!

Is there a book that these stitches are in as I am fairly new at crocheting and would like to learn more than just chain and single and double stitches?
