Ready to make a lot of French knots?
French knots elevate off the fabric like tiny beads. And when you stitch them closely together and use a variegated thread like Asters, you can make a carpet of color.
In this step, we’ll first define the furrow lines in the center field using a whip stitch and then fill in the field with French knots.
Step #7- Fill in the Center Field
- Whip Stitch a thread around each line of chain stitches that make the furrow lines on the center field.
- Use a size 8 pearl cotton (like Butter) and a size 3 hand embroidery needle.
