There are many stitches made up of knots. Today's stitch is a good cross between a French Knot and a Bullion Knot.
I found it at the excellent online stitch dictionary, Sarah's Hand Embroidery Tutorial.
Work it like this:
Fasten the thread on the back.
Take a small bite of the fabric
next to where the thread comes out.
Wrap the needle two or three times,
(as you would a Bullion Knot)
Anchor close to the knot.
One knot looks good,
Several knots look better!
