I LOVE French Knots! In my opinion, this stitch is a must-have in your stitching arsenal. They add texture and are very versatile in how you can use them.
1. Bring your needle up through the fabric where you want your knot to be.
2. Wrap your floss around the needle 2 times.
3. While holding the needle in your predominant hand (for me it's my right hand), be sure to hold the floss coming off the wrapped needle in your other hand (my left). Then place the tip of the needle down right next to where your needle originally came up. Slowly pull that needle through the fabric.
And there you have it. You have 1 completed French Knot.
Now you can get more creative and vary the size of French Knots based on how many times you wrap the floss around the needle. In the photos above, I am showing you those differences. From top to bottom, you can see the following:
