How to Join Ends of a Scarf with Slipped Stitches
This crochet tutorial with Heidi Gustad shows a beginner friendly, basic crochet stitch that can help you put your crochet work together with the help of slip stitch. In the video, the yarn was a thicker yarn of solid color, which allowed the bumps from the previous stitches to be seen more easily, so when using fine yarn or small gages it is really important to make sure the stitches line up. If you begin slip stitch unevenly or do not follow the bumps correctly, puckering or skewed lines may form in your pattern. However, if you are able to perfectly line up your work and crochet it together it can form a great cowl and help make other beautiful patterns that will hold together nicely.
