Place the slip knot on hook and pull it to the front of the work.
Insert hook again from front to back in next stitch of the row.
Yarn over and pull it to the front of the work, and work a slip stitch.
Repeat by making a slip stitch in each stitch.
To achieve an invisible finish, follow these steps:
Cut yarn, pull through last stitch made, and thread the needle. Insert the needle under both loops of the first stitch of the round and pull yarn through.Then, insert needle through back loop of the last stitch made and pull yarn through. This will create a false stitch. Simply adjust it by pulling the yarn until it matches the size of the other stitches. Weave in all ends.
