how to finish a stitch-aari
here's your original knot, which is used in aari.
i've made 2 chains. now i want to finish it.
pull a long loop,
keeping it as it is, through the first loop, punch very closely to it and pull the 2nd loop,
pull it through the first loop,
make 2 twist,
without leaving the twist and second loop, get the first loop,
now drag it through the second loop and pull the thread under the frame tightly.
that's it.usually when you pull the thread under the frame tightly,the knot and the extra thread will automatically go bellow the cloth and only the stitch will be seen.
but if extra threadmis above the cloth,eg8th photo,
don't worry just insert the needle from below and drag the thread down.
though it looks so easy, it needs practise. so friends try it try it.
