Foundation Slip Stitch Tutorial (fsl st)
"Foundation stitches have become a popular, alternative way to start your crochet projects. The same technique can work with almost any stitch, including slip stitches! Foundation slip stitches are not as ideal for a first row, but instead create a beautiful and strong cord. This can be used for lacing, drawstrings, ties, bracelets, or trim. The best part is, there’s no need to determine the length of your cord before you start. Just keep stitching until you have a length you like."
