It’s tough being a leftie. Everything is built for right-handed people. Tutorials for embroidery stitches are usually written for right-handed people.
So, I decided to give you a tutorial for left-handed people because of this. I give you the French knot! For lefties! Yay!
Here is a list of supplies you will need for this tutorial.
- 4″ embroidery hoop
- 1 embroidery needle. I prefer these.
- embroidery thread- about 12″ long
- 1 10″X10″ piece of fabric- I used this
Bring your needle up from the back of your fabric. Pull the embroidery floss all the way until the knot stops it.
With the needle in your left hand, and the thread held by your right fingers, tuck the needle under the embroidery floss. See below.
Wrap the embroidery floss three times around the needle.
Once the floss is wrapped around the needle, place needle down into the fabric at the same spot you came up in step 1.
There you have it! The French knot for lefties. It will look like the picture below when you pull the embroidery floss all the way through.
