Tie the Knot with your Thread

Feb 18, 2008

When you complete a series of hand stitches and need to knot the thread, there’s a very simple way to get a knot that really holds. Draw the needle through the first loop twice, pull it tight, then repeat. The knot will be much tighter than a single-loop knot. This method is fast!
