A Colonial Knot is a little different that a French Knot. It doesn't make that little doughnut. It makes a good tied knot but wrapping the needle in a figure eight. Check it out...
|bring the needle up, and then lie the tip over and under the thread like that...|
|Take the working thread and put it across the tip of the needle and then tuck it under again.|
|put the needle back into the cloth, close to where you first came up|
|Pull to tighten the knot a bit and then take the needle right through to the bottom.|
And there you have it! It's pretty easy. They sure look lumpy and knotty compared the the French Knot. They would work great as pebbles in a small landscape I bet. hmm....
Have a great weekend!
