Tips for making the perfect French Knot
- A Milliner’s needle has the same shaft thickness throughout making the passing of the needle through the wrapping easy. Use it if you have one.
- Do not wrap the thread too tight or too loose, but just tight enough to ensure that the eye of your needle passes smoothly through it.
- Wrap the thread no more than twice around the needle. If you want a thicker knot, use more strands of thread instead of more wraps.
- Do not pass the needle back in through the same stitch point that you came out from, but near it. This ensures your knot does not fall through the hole in the fabric to the other side!
