Perfect French Knots Tutorial

There is a secret to making French knots,




after you wrap the thread twice around the needle,




pull the thread so the wraps are tight,


then slide your thumbnail up against the needle so it holds the thread of the last wrap nice and taut.


Final French Knot



  Then while holding the thread, with the other hand gently pull the needle through the fabric until the thread is all the way throught, do not pull the needle so the thread is really tight, you need a nice tension and your knots will turn out perfectly every time.
