French knot stitch start and end positions
In the photo above, the French knot stitch is stitched from right to left.
Make the stitch at the beginning of the stitch slightly inward from the right edge.
The stitch at the beginning of the stitch is hidden under the French knot stitch, so make it as small as possible on the draft line.
The end stitch is made between the French knot stitches.
The last French knot stitch in the above photo is the far left.
Between the first and second French knot stitches from the left = the first stitch at the end of the stitch.
Second end stitch between the second and third French knot stitches.
Finally, pull out the thread from between the third and fourth French knot stitches and cut it with scissors.
When embroidering with the French knot stitch to fill up, create the beginning stitch in the draft line.

The first, second, and last stitches at the end of the embroidery are all made in different places where the thread is exposed and cut with scissors.
How to French knot stitch
First, bring the needle out slightly below where you want to make the French knot stitch.
If you extend the needle from the center point where you want the French knot stitch, the actual French knot stitch will be slightly above the desired location.
So the needle comes out slightly below where you want to make the French knot stitch.
Cross the embroidery needle under the thread.
Keeping the angle between the thread and the needle as it is, bring the finger holding the needle close to the thread and pinch the thread together with the fingertips.
Move the needle tip clockwise with respect to the thread above your finger.
After that, move the front thread from the front to the back.
Insert the needle slightly above where the thread is coming out.
Be careful not to insert the needle again into the same hole where the first needle came out.
By setting the position where the needle is first put out below the white line and the position where the needle is inserted above the white line,
You can make a French knot stitch knot in the center of the white line.
After inserting the needle, pulling the thread will move the knot onto the fabric.
Be gentle as you pass the needle through the back of the fabric.
