I often enjoy working a ribbing for my crochet beanies and this Yarn Over Slip Stitch Ribbing creates a beautiful knit look!

Sometimes this stitch is called the half double crochet slip stitch.  If you are not a fan of a simple slip stitch ribbing (which can be challenging to work because the stitches are tight), the yarn over slip stitch ribbing may be a great alternative as the stitches are a bit easier to work.  It has a bit of stretch and spring to it, however it is not as much as the slip stitch ribbing would have.  I hope you will try it in your next project, it is so easy!

Yarn Over slip stitch crochet ribbing worked in grey yarn

Materials for this Tutorial:

For this tutorial today I will be using a small amount of Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is a worsted weight yarn. The hook shown in the video below is a 5 mm crochet hook by Rowan Yarns (I purchased mine from Fleece and Harmony).  However you may use any hook and yarn combination you choose.

Yarn Over Slip Stitch Ribbing:

To begin, make a slip knot and then chain your desired number of chains.  For this stitch pattern you may use any multiple of stitches for your foundation chain.

Row One:

Work a yarn over slip stitch in the second chain from your hook and in each stitch across.

To work the yarn over slip stitch, yarn over and insert your hook into the indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop drawing it through all the loops on your hook.  Your yarn over slip stitch is made.

Chain one and turn your work.


Row Two:

Working in the back loop only of each stitch, yarn over slip stitch in each stitch across.  Chain one and turn your work.

And that’s it!

For the rest of the pattern simply repeat row two for as long as you would like, fasten off and weave in your ends.
