Why? Because as you create knots, your fabric strip will twist and turn, often causing the “wrong” side to be visible. To prevent this, you must gently fold the fabric and turn the right side up. This will cause your knotting process to slow down. It is well worth the extra time if you have a beautiful fabric you really want to use, but if you are a beginner, you may want to stick to solids with matching sides front and back.
