Making a Slipknot

This basic knot comes in handy outside knitting and crochet, too.

Illustration A

Let the tail of the yarn hang in front of your palm, and loop the yarn loosely around the first two fingers of your left hand.

Illustration B

Pull the yarn attached to the ball underneath the yarn behind your fingers and then through the loop.

Illustration C

Hold the tail of the yarn in your left hand and the newly made loop in your right hand. Pull the tail to tighten, and make a slipknot.
