How Do I Make A Backwards Knot Tighter?

by Ricky D.

I've just recently gotten back into friendship bracelets. (I'd forgotten how much fun they were!)

I can do forward knots practically in my sleep. But when I do the backwards knots, they seem to be a bit loose (compared to the forward knots) and sometimes a bit of the other thread shows through.

Any tips on tightening them up? (Preferably when I make them, as opposed to going back after each knot and re-tightening it.)


P.S. Is it weird that a guy likes making these?
