French Knot

This is a fun stitch you can use to create many effects in designs. It can be small or large. Using more than one strand of thread or a thick braid, for instance, makes the knot fuller.

Where to use it:
  • wherever you want a "dot"
  • as flower centers with letters and numbers and punctuation marks
  • use in bunches to replicate sheep, curly hair, a beard or moustache, etc.
  • to replicate snowballs
  • as accent on eyes
  • filling stitch
  • also popular in Ribbon Embroidery
What to use:
  • Kreinik Braids - any size, depending on your ground fabric and design
  • Kreinik Ombre
  • Kreinik 1/16" ribbon
  • Kreinik Silk Mori
  • Kreinik Silk Serica
  • Kreinik Silk Bella
How to do it:
Come up at 1, wrap the thread around your needle either once or twice depending on the design instructions, then plunge your needle back down into the fabric right beside the spot where you started (don't go back down into the same hole). Keep the thread snugly around your needle.
