Bring the threaded needle from WS to RS in the st where the knot should be. Place the needle tip against piece and twine the loop tightly 2 times around the needle tip. Pull the needle through these loops so that there is a double knot on the thread. Insert the needle as close as possible to the st where the thread first came through (not in the exact same place, or it will pull back through) and fasten on the back - see Fig.1.
