How to do a Danish Knot

Learn how to do a Danish knot if you want to add some fun flair to your embroidery project.  This is a fun knot that will create a little triangle shape.  It could be used to embroider a kitty nose or jack-o-lantern eyes… anything that you’d need a small triangle for.

How to do a Danish Knot

To do the Danish knot, you’ll use three points and wrap your thread around itself as you go.  The most important this is that you don’t tug too hard on your thread, or your shape will get distorted.  There’s really no way for me describe it without showing you, so take a look at my video below for all the details.

I’m revisiting embroidery at 76 yrs old. I learned when I was 10-11. As my interest in fiber arts grew in many other directions , embroidery was left behind. My 23yr old granddaughter is now doing charming designs , and tho we are distanced due to COVID-19 we share our work.I ‘ m a bit rusty , but know practice makes perfect . Your videos are EXCELLANT. I’m sure I will be returning. Tho my i Pad is a challenge . Thank you so much !
