The surface slip stitch is an embellishment of slip stitches worked on top of the fabric of your crochet work. Tie a small knot at the end of your string of yarn but do not place it on your hook. Insert your hook from the right side through to the wrong side where you want your string of slip stitches to start, now wrap the yarn over the hook and draw it through the stitch (1). Insert your hook in the next stitch, wrap the yarn over your hook (2) and pull it through the stitch and the loop on your hook. This is the start of a string of surface slip stitches. Repeat this to the end of your crochetwork or in any shape you like (3).
