How do you finish a cross stitch without a knot?
Try wiggling the needle and/or pushing it from the end with the eye. Once it’s through, make sure your floss has been pulled tight. But not so tight that you warp any of the stitches on the front of your project! You can take a deep breath now – the floss is secure!
How do you start a cross stitch without knots?
If you want to avoid making any knots for your cross stitch project, starting with a buried thread might be the easiest way to go. It is a great alternative for a waste knot in case you are stitching with a floss color that has a big contrast with your fabric.
