- The first thing you need to do to start the slip knot is to have the yarn in your hand. With the yarn you want to make a loop so that the yarn crosses itself.
- Now take the end of the yarn that connects to the yarn ball or skein that you have and pull it through the loop.
- To tighten pull on the side of the string that leads to the knot.
- If done right you should now have a slip knot. Be careful not to pull too much yarn through the loop otherwise you will have a loopy mess that will be hard to make a knot out of.
