Default Re: How to double knot when using Gator-Bite?

Wrap the thread around the bow and pull it tight (You'll have to slip the needle through the space in the Gator Bite). Keep tension on the bow when you pull it out and it works perfectly. Then you can wrap it a few more times and add a few stitches to secure the folds.

I'm not very good at instructions, but I HTH.

This is what I do also.
