Progress on my Gingham Sampler - French Knots.
French Knots are one of my favourite stitches and like bullion knots are from the knot stitch family of stitches.. I have been told that a true French knot, only has one wrap – maybe two, but any more wraps and it falls into the bullion knot category.Keeping with the true French knot advice, I have wrapped only once or twice and have chosen to use threads of different thickness, to ensure the completed French knots are varied in size and thickness.
To work a French knot I find it easier to use a “Straw Needle” to suit the thread.
Like the bullion knot – French Knot are another great stitch for texture of a bumpy style.
