French Knot

Embroidery

Appearance in pattern - FK or Fk

Bring needle from fabric back to front; keeping floss taut, wrap twice around needle and insert needle back through fabric from front to back. Hold floss taut until needle is completely through fabric, pull gently to tighten. Be careful not to pull too hard, or knot may slip through fabric. If working on a very open-weave fabric, cross a fabric thread when inserting needle back through fabric.
