Knots are commonly used in knitting and crochet to secure the thread on the needle. This is the first step in making a knot and crochet activity.
Step 1. Take the thread about 12 cm from the end of the thread with your left hand
Step 2. Make a loop by taking the other piece of yarn (still connected to the spool) and looping it over the end of the yarn
Firmly grasp the point where the threads intersect and form a loop using your left thumb and forefinger.
Step 3. 'Use your right hand to pull the other part of the yarn (still connected to the skein of yarn) and make a new loop, but it doesn't have to be a point where it intersects
Step 4. Take the new circle with your right hand and thread it through the first circle until the first loop tightens
Step 5. Insert this new loop on the tip of your needle or crochet needle and pull the end of the thread to close and tighten the loop of knot on the needle
