The Invisible Slip Stitch and Chainless Starting Stitch eliminate the typical turning chain and slip stitch for a seamless, nearly invisible join, perfect for working STRIPES!

See my original video on the Invisible Join method here.

This technique is perfect for any project that requires joining at the end of the round, and is ideal for jogless stripes. It is just as seamless as working in a continuous spiral, yet doesn’t create a jog, or uneven section in your stripes.

The Chainless Starting Double Crochet is abbreviated as CSDC.
The Chainless Starting Half-Double Crochet is abbreviated as CSHDC.
The Chainless Starting Single Crochet is abbreviated as CSSC.

      Hi Miriam. You could use the Invisible Slip Stitch to join when you’re finished with a spiral, or you could join your spiral and then work a few regular rounds beginning with the chainless starting stitches to work a stripe before going back to working in a spiral. However, the purpose of this technique is to make the join blend in when working in rounds, which I typically use when I don’t want to work in a spiral. I hope this helps!
