Are your knits a knot? Did you know “knit” and “knot” are synonyms?

While those of us who enjoy yarn prefer keeping these words separate instead of knotted together (;D), the thesaurus dates back to a time when they were similar. In Middle English, to knit was to make a net through knotting cord!

So here’s a video on starting with a knot – a slip knot. This was specifically explained for a crochet class where we were discussing how to start. This is very helpful for anyone doing a magic circle start as the tail is used to tighten the circle.
