How to Crochet a French Knot

  • Thread the needle using the colored thread or yarn you've picked for your project.

  • Spread out your fabric. Using a pencil, lightly mark where you want to place the French knots. Gather the fabric and push your needle through the underside so the needle is pushing through the fabric toward you.

  • Wind the thread or yarn around the needle three times. The thread should not be too tight, but it should be tight enough to create a small knot.

  • Push your needle back through the fabric. The reentry point should be as close to the entry point as possible to secure the knot.

  • Pull the thread through the fabric. A knot should be formed on the topside of the fabric. Pull the thread just enough to tighten the knot, but not unravel it. You may need to practice this a few times before you accomplish the perfect French knot.
