I hope I can explain it properly and apologies if not: Take your length of thread and double it over, then insert the cut ends of thread into the eye of the needle, this leaves you with a loop at the end of your strand of thread. You then insert the thread from the top of your work but leave a loop of about 1". Come back up a thread away from that loop and put the needle through the loop, pull your thread and you have a start without a knot. I think that's the way Ellie did it but she started on the underneath when she should have started on the top. I know that Alex did a demo of this in another programme but I just can't remember which one. Hope that helps.
