Stitching Towards the Knot
If you are right-handed, start at the bottom right-hand corner of your piece working from right to left. If you are left-handed, start at the bottom left-hand corner of your piece working from left to right. To start stitching, tie a knot in your strand of wool at the end. Next, thread the wool from the front of the canvas to the back of the canvas, leaving the knot at the front of your canvas. The knot needs to be around an inch to the left from the hole where you plan to start stitching.
