so does doing it this way stretch the elastic even more than normal? I am just wondering if you have to make your measurments to compensate a little more stretching out? TIA!

I am buy no means an expert. But you can't see my first two on a thread I posted today. I tied at least 2 -3 pieces together. I did it at the same time. I alternated the colors going on top. On one I added gold like every fourth one. I think they look full. Not sure if they will stay fluffy? These are my first. Mine did stretch out as I was doing it. I ended up cutting it and sewing it again. Not sure why, except I did on a chair?

Well, it's my thought that the point to going back and adding a second and possibly third layer in between the previous knots is to do exactly what you asked in your OP...to give fullness. Because when you are tying knots in between the first layer of knots they will automatically sit higher, an effect that you can't achieve just by squishing more knots into one layer.

Does that make any sense?

I'm hijacking because this has always confused me..bear with me..
This is what I don't get..


So lets say I'm making a tutu:

------------

(that's my elastic)

X and O are my two colors of tulle that I am square knotting onto my tutu in an alternating pattern:

X-O-X-O-X-O (knots)

Now, for the second layer, when you say you put another layer between the first layer of knots, if my new knots are "a" and "b" would it be:

XaObXaOb

or something like:
X-O-X-O-X-O
a b a b a

(where its "a" under X ("a" is tied to the bottom of the X knot))
and if this just makes everything worse, sorry!

this is exactly what I was trying to figure out! If it goes in between like it sounds like, or more on top.

I think like you do. I don't understand either.

That was an awesome diagram!! Explains what I'm wondering too..

I found this tut on youtube where she shows two different types of knots, and compares them to each other. The double knot you can see makes it much fuller looking than the slip knot. Waiting for my tulle to arrive this week and will be working on making full tutus as well! HTH
