Has anyone ever tried serving over the tag ends (say with dental floss) to hold them in place?

The tag ends can be cut shorter if you don’t like the look. Melt them with a match.

Or, serve over the flemish twist with yarn. It serves to quiet the string a bit too. I don’t think you should serve the flemish twist with anything tight as it would inhibit the locking action of the flemish twist….
