  1. There is NOT a knot strong enough to withstand the usage and washing of a knitted or crocheted item. Wool needs to be ‘spliced’ together into a single strand and all others need to be ‘spliced woven’ into worked stitches. I have been knitting and crocheting for over 55 years and I guarantee if you tie ANY knot in you yarn it will eventually work itself loose to expose a nasty surprise after all your time spent on your project. The only ‘magic’ used here is if you believe this knot will work.

  2. The knot shown in the example is technically not correct. Both knots are left-handed. They need to be backwards of one-another for full strength.
