Why is it called French knitting?
The yarn trailing down through the hole is given a tug to draw the knitted braid down through it. The cords so produced where used as piping to edge dresses. This is also refered to as French Knitting. (In Germany they’re called Nahliesle.)
How do you thread a French knit?
You need to start by getting your yarn on your french knitter. Start by threading the yarn down the center of your knitter and bring it to the outside and hold it in place with your thumb. Make a loop around one of the hooks sticking off the knitter. Continue to loop your yarn around all the hooks going clockwise.
