Larks Head Knot

A tip from Doug Kreinik has proved useful with Bijoux thread and can be used with blending filament. 

I’ve used a Larks Head Knot to lock a thread on the canvas when I need to stitch with 2 stands. For this, you lock in the center of the thread. But, you can also use this knot to lock the thread onto a needle to prevent it from falling out of the eye. And, you can stitch with just one thread by locking it near one end of the thread.

First, put a loop through the eye of the needle.

Second, put the point of the needle through the loop.

Lastly, pull both threads to make it taut. Now, thread will stay in place as you stitch!

Hi Alex, Thanks so much! I started in 2011. I can create blogs from the .com page on my computer or on my phone using their app and both are easy to use. Set up was with a “wizard” as I recall. So, in just a few steps, I was blogging! It’s a great reference tool for my work.
