French knot help

Iíve been doing a cross stitch kit and I need to do a french knot for a bit of it.

Iíve been practising it on a different bit of fabric but canít do it, it just goes through as a normal Ďstitchí (I have no idea if thatís the right word, Iím not crafty)

Iíve watched YouTube videos and paused as I copied what they did but every time I fail. It annoys me so much because I can see the logic of how itíd make a knot!

Any tips?

The secret us to pull the stitch through slowly, to keep the knot in place. Practice just doing lots of french knots, you will suddenly get it! They become quite addictive once you master them and leave a lovely effect on the fabric.
My local Hobbycraft staff are pretty poor to be honest, but you can try!

If you really canít do them, add a tiny seed bead in place of the knot.
