Learn How To Make A French Knot
by Barbara Breiter
French Knots are an easy embroidery technique, useful in knitting to embellish projects.
- Thread a blunt eyed tapestry needle with yarn.
- Bring the needle from back to front, holding on to the end of the yarn at the back so you don't pull it all the way through.
- Bring the needle from front to back close to where you brought the yarn up initially.
- Bring the needle from back to front at the same point you did initially.
- Insert the needle under the stitch you just made but don't pull it all the way through.
- At the blunt end of the needle (not the eye), wrap the yarn around clockwise 3 times.
- Hold the wrapped yarn in place on the needle and pull the needle through. Pull to tighten the knot.
- Bring the needle from front to back near the French Knot you just made!
