- if your thread is knotting - you probably have a thread with a nap -
reverse the direction of your thread (put the other end in your
needle). Most of the time this greatly lessens knotting.
The other thing that causes knotting is twist buildup. Let your
needle untwist periodically by dropping your needle or every few
stitches untwist your needle a quarter turn.
Hope this helps
