How to Tie a Knot for Hand Sewing

Learn how to tie a solid knot for hand sewing, which is great for hand sewing buttons! Knotting thread this way is also ideal for intricate stitches, which can’t be completed with a domestic sewing machine.

Take these steps for a successful thread knot:

  1. Wrap the thread around your index finger to create an X shape.
  2. Grasp the X between your thumb and index finger.
  3. Move your index finger back letting the thread move ahead through the back of the loop. Pull the thread that has just gone through the loop with your other hand until a tight knot is formed.
