Slip stitch is a term that is the same between US and UK terms, I believe.

In the pictures, it looks exactly like what rows and rows of slip stitches would look like. I'm not sure how you'd get sc to look like that, unless there's some way to insert the hook I haven't tried.

if you can slip stitch a whole afghan that looks that awesome you can certainly learn other stitches.  You just need someone to help you learn.  You can take classes at Michael's and Joann's to learn the other types of stitches, and once you learn there will be nothing you can't do.  Don't give it up.

it's lovely; I think the tassles finish it off well too.  I'm sure if you had someone show you another stitch in person you could do it.  You need to chat up somebody's granny!   Wink

If you can make that entire afghan in one stitch, trust me you can learn to do any of them. I learned one stitch a long time ago, and taught myself how to do the others by repeatedly watching youtube videos until my eyes bled. It's all just practice!! Cause it's just yarn, and it unravels if you screw up Cheesy  Now my favorite afghan stitch is double crochet cause it makes a tight fabric, but loose enough for airflow to keep warm, and it goes fast!!!  speaking of that......I should finish that baby blanket....lol Cheesy

Thanks. Smiley I didn't know places like Michael's taught classes in it. I think having it shown in person would be a lot easier. I tried watching videos, but I just didn't get it. It would be fun to be able to make patterns, instead of doing one stitch 129028049804 times. I might have to look into classes... it would be a fun winter project.

Hahaha, I totally need someone's granny to chat up. lol. Somehow my entire family is uncapable of crafts. Someone showing me would definitely help. Hm, where can I find an old lady? Cheesy

Thanks. I tried watching videos and couldn't nail it, but I didn't quite watch them as hard as you. lol. Maybe I'll try it again. Smiley
