Colonial knot - A Colonial Knot is a little different than a French Knot.  It doesn't make that little doughnut.  It makes a good tied knot by wrapping the needle in a figure eight.

English Knot, instead of a french knot. Makes a true knot, not a donut shaped knot.from My Sweet Prairie: - - - Saturday Stitches - - -

Lacomtesse: Love this Yule tree with embroidery scissors as trunk, though I would probably replace the topper with a star.
