Help - slip knot

I’m brand new to knitting. My grandma taught me when I was a kid but that was over 30 years ago. I can knit the first row in a couple minutes but when it comes to the slip knot I can never cross it over or if I do everything starts turning to crap. I did it once and then on the third row it wouldn’t take again. I’m siixk of ripping up what I’ve accomplished and re starting. Thank you everyone!

I think it might help if you could post a photo of what’s happening. How are you making the slip knot?

I’m starting all over again…so I will send a pic when it happens again. Sorry, it wasn’t the best explanation. I’m making the slip knot with my fingers, not a needle.

I hold the yarn, wrap one end around to make a circle and pull the yarn end through
