Fool Proof French Knot



You now have absolutely no excuse for not learning how to do a French Knot. After years of refining my explanation of one of the most challenging stitches to explain (not 'do') I think I've finally nailed it for you. All the little details that elude understanding and make stitchers disparage this lovely little knot have been (hopefully) brought to light. So, if you've given up on the French Knot, or have just been improvising with small stitches, I implore you to try it one more time: Now-I-Understand-It: French Knot. (Yes! There's a version for lefties too!)
