If you have trouble with a French Knot, know that you are not alone. Lot’s of people find Colonial Knots easier, so I decided to make a quick video that will show exactly how to make a Colonial Knot.
The mechanics of the Colonial Knot are a little more difficult, but once you get the hang of it, the Colonial Knot can give more consistent results. It’s very similar to a French Knot, but instead of just wrapping the thread around twice, you make a figure 8 around the needle. Of course, watching a video is always going to be easier, so I made one. You can click the video below or check it out on my YouTube channel.
