Trouble with French Knot? Answered
I'm really having a terrible time with my French knots. I keep doing everything that you've mentioned (and I've even looked at other articles and videos to help) but my knot just always keeps getting pulled through to the other side, resulting in just a tiny straight stitch.
I've hooped my fabric very tightly and do my best to keep the thread taught on the needle, but nothing seems to be working. When I hold my thread tight, the wrapped part just flies off above the needle before I have a chance to pull it through the fabric.
Any tips or tricks? I've been trying to do them off and on for three days now and I'm still unable to do them. :(
