I?ve decided to start learn to knot. As I?m a naturally inpatient person I didn?t read any guides when I first tried out how to knot, so I just took two threads and pulled them both through the bead and did a knot, but the knot came out about 1 cm from the place where it should have been, after trying it a little more I was able to make the knots where they should be. Is this method wrong? It looks a bit like the one in the pearl-paradise knotting video on youtube. But then I was reading about the method on this page http://www.firemountaingems.com/bead...ccat=tutorials , it doesn?t say if it?s for actually knotting beads and pearls but it looks like it so I tried that method since it seemed easier. The knots came out really tiny, and I could just pull the pearls I was knotting right over them, so I decided to string with 4 threads to make them bigger, but then they were way to big for the drillhole. So I tried with 3 threads, same result. So now I?m wondering:
1. Is the problem that the drillhole is too big/small?
2. Is the problem the thread? (No idea what it is made of. Cotton?)
3. Is this method completely wrong anyway?
