BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

TO START A ROW OR A NEW YARN
* Thread your needle. If you find it difficult threading the needle, watch our quick tip video on a easy threading technique by clicking this link.

* GENERAL RULE: DO NOT KNOT THE YARN.

* From back of canvas, bring the needle up through a hole leaving a tail of about 1 to 1 ½” long on the back of the canvas.

* Hold the tail on the back of the canvas in the stitching direction.

* Start stitching, working the stitches over the tail.

TO FILL UNSTICHED AREA
After stitching one color, sometime an unstitched area must be filled in or stitched with a different color. What do you do? It's simple.

* Flip the canvas to the back.

* Insert the needle and yarn through several stitches close to the area to be stitched.

* Bring needle up from back and stitch.

TO ADD EMBELLISHMENTS
Some designs call for adding embellishments such as French knots, lazy daisies, outlines stitches and other things to the project. How do you anchor the yarn?

* Anchor the yarn in the same manner as for filling unstitched area (see above).

This sample shows how to anchor yarn in area already stitched and how the back of the canvas should look when yarn is anchored properly.
