This knot, worked singularly or to fill in a shape, is slightly larger than a French knot. Bring the thread up at A and, holding the thread loosely to the left of the needle, move the needle so the thread wraps over it. Continue to wrap the thread under, over and then under it again to form a figure 8. Pierce the fabric again at B, ensuring it’s as close to where you brought it through at A. Pull the wraps firmly around the needle and, holding the knot in place with your thumb, pull the thread through to the back of your fabric to form the knot.
