How To Embroider My Favorite Stitch: The French Knot
The French knot can be used individually for tiny decoration, or combined to create a bubbly texture.
Come up from the back of your fabric.
With your needle close to the fabric, wrap the floss around the needle twice.
Insert the needle very close to where it first came up, but not in the exact hole. If the knot is too tight it can be difficult to pull through.
Here’s one French knot again, showing the full process.
I’m using 6 strand embroidery floss for this example. You could use just 3 strands for a smaller knot.
Here the floss is wrapped around the needle twice. For a bigger knot you can wrap the floss more times.
Experiment with size, color, and texture. Have fun!
