Post Crochet waistband tutu question...

I have made a couple of tutu's using a crochet headband as the waist. However, I don't think I'm tying it correctly. The tulle sticks straight up. Can someone help me figure out how to tie it so that it will lay down. I cannot stack layers when it's all sticking upwards. Very annoying! haha! Also, in looking at other photos, I have noticed that everyone else's knots are nice and thick. My knots are small and puny. Any help would be great! Thanks so much!

Arrow Re: Crochet waistband tutu question...

I know for my three layer crochet waistband tutu I tied a slip knot but now I do a double knot and I love it! It looks wonderful! I don't like the slip knot version any more. When I do mine I do the layer then skip a row or two then do the next color etc... I don't know what u mean by "sticks straight up" mine lays down you also have to move your knot down too or in other words rearrange it. Hope that helps!

I used a double knot and even after rearranging my knot, each strand of tulle would separate and one of the pieces would stick upwards. I couldn't get it to lay down. The best I could get was the whole tutu standing straight out to the sides. They just looked awful. I'm a photographer, and I just thought making the tutu's would save me a little money in props, but not if I have to keep remaking them! haha!

Also, when you say "double knot", just to be clear, do you mean a double overhand knot, or two knots? I tried a double overhand knot. I just want to make sure we're talking about the same thing :-)

I do the Eagle scout way lol I wrap the tulle around non roll elastic then I say this over and over in my head till I'm finished "left over right, right over left." I'm a weirdo but that is what my hubby said to do and I love it!! I also think I just figured out how to do multiple layered tutu's using the double Knot! Also, how long was the tulle you were using that could be some of the reason y it stood straight out.
