Alternative to French knot

I'm never happy with my French knots. Is there an alternative?

Yes, try making a colonial knot.

  1. Bring the needle up through the fabric where you want the knot to appear. Wind the thread around the needle in roughly a figure of eight.
  2. Now push the needle back into the fabric close to where the thread emerged, keeping the thread taut. Draw the thread through carefully.
  3. Practice on a spare piece of fabric until you've got it.
