Question: How do you join a slip stitch?

What is a joining stitch?

Decorative stitch used in sleeves, fronts of blouses and dresses. Attach two separate pieces of fabric together, leaving a little space in between.

What does join rounds mean?

The solution is to crochet in joined rounds. That means, at the start of each round, you chain one, and then slip stitch into that chain at the end of the round.

Does slip stitch count as a stitch?

When counting your chain stitches at the start of a pattern—which you must do very carefully before continuing—note that the loop on the crochet hook is never counted as a stitch and the starting slip knot is never counted as a stitch.
