Welcome back

Your Poinsettia flower hand embroidery sampler should be starting to take shape now.

French Knots

You either love them or hate them but once you get the hang of them, French knots make your hand embroidery projects really come to life.

You will need to stitch the outlines of Petal 4 and Petal 13 with French knots close together.

I used a thread similar in thickness to 2 strands of DMC and wrapped my needle twice for each Knot.

  • french-knot
  • french-knot


If you want larger knots use a thicker thread or wrap your needle 3 times rather than 2.
