I remember when I first started learning to join with crochet. I had been crocheting for months by then. But I had been so scared of making a circle, well because I had never done it before. I think we can all relate to being scared of the unknown at one time or another. (If not, props to you!) Well now I think about it, and it feels kinda silly. Had I actually known how easy it was, I would have just dove head first for it. Part of making a circle is learning how to join. (You know I’m talking about rows, not rounds.)
By far, this is my absolute favorite way of joining with crochet! I love joining in the first stitch instead of the chain. What it does, is help blend the stitches and chain to look as one. You could say it looks invisible.
BTW you can find me on Instagram @AshleyDylanLife.
All you do is insert the crochet hook in the top of the first stitch. Then make a slip stitch in that stitch. Woohoo! You’re all done! If you need a little extra help, I’ve made a video for right handed and left handed. Plus, I added a bonus, a photo tutorial. I hope you find it super helpful! 😊
Here’s the video to help you out:

Starting in the top of the first crochet stitch.
Now, take the yarn over the crochet hook.
Then, catch the yarn on the hook and pull it back through the stitch.
Make a slip stitch in the first crochet stitch. That’s it! You did it! You just learned how to join with crochet! Congrats! 🙂

Did you love this method as much as I do?
Do you have a different way of joining you prefer more, if so, how?
