This is knotty!

French knots!, originally uploaded by appleblossomfl.

Nothing stitchy makes me happier than when people use French knot as a filling stitch. Like in this mermaid from appleblossomfl. That takes patience! But I think it is always worth it.

See the whole mermaid here.


  1. HOLY COW!!! Thanks so much for featuring my mermaid!!! It did take quite awhile to do, but I LOVE the way it looks!
