French Knots add so much texture to an embroidery piece. I love using them to fill in a little (or big) area of space or just to add a little flair to an embroidery piece. French knots are also great for simple things like dotting an i when you are stitching words.
Below is a video tutorial for creating french knots!
One of my favorite patterns that uses french knots is the Donut Worry Be Happy embroidery pattern. Not only does this pattern use French knots, but it’s also just cute and punny.
