At one of my net making demonstrations years ago a spectator who was a tatting expert suggested this method. It eliminates the need to make a bight to the left of the loop you are tying into. This results in a increase in the speed of the netting process.
1. Instead of making the bight (loop) to the left, bring the needle to the right with the cord around the back of your hand.
2. Bring the needle behind the 2 strands as usual, the cord stays around the back of your hand.
3. Back your hand out of the loop and tighten as usual.
