Blog > French Knot Rose

  A French knot rose is ideal for making small flowers and roses.   Click on images to enlarge..       1. Use 2, 4 or 7mm silk ribbon or 6mm organza ribbon 2. Wrap the ribbon once or twice around your needle as if you were making a French knot, but instead of inserting needle back into the fabric, gather the ribbon for 3 to 5 cm (I or 2 inches) as shown below…   ◕‿◕ See how the needle is pointing to where the ribbon first emerged? The gathered stitches are about 3mm (⅛”) apart.       3. Insert the needle into your fabric and gently pull the ribbon to the back to form a small rose-like shape. 4. You could add a French knot or a little seed bead in yellow to form the stamens.   For a free tutorial on making French Knot Roses, you are welcome to see it here on my YouTube channel.   To download the stitch for your collection, you are welcome to click on the line below: [download id="135"]   Enjoy!   Love Di
