How to embroider a French knot

In this DROPS video we show how to embroider a French knot.

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.

You must read the pattern to be able to follow. You’ll find patterns where you can use this technique by clicking on the pictures below.

Geweldig, ik heb tijden zitten proberen, maar het lukte niet. Oh, wat kan het soms simpel zijn met een instructievideo!
