How to make a Knotless Single Crochet

This video will show how to make a knotless single crochet. We are making a single crochet without the slip knot attached to the crochet hook.  

For years, I have attached a slip knot to my crochet hook when changing colors. This adds extra yarn and bulk , distorting the stitches at the join. Going knotless will reduce the amount of yarn used to join the new yarn. When it comes time to complete your project, you will still need to knot and secure your tail somewhere, to anchor the stitch so it does not come loose.

This suggestion was shared with me from a viewer.
