How to Make White Roses Using a French Knot Technique
French Knot Roses
See the white rose arch above the gate in this picture?
They are easy to make with stunning results and I will show you how on
to this page.
In Karen's instructions, she wrote:
White Rose Bush
French knot roses
in Di van Niekerk's silk ribbon: 2mm and 4mm white (103) ribbon. Add a few larger roses in 7mm (103) ribbon.
Add leaves in 4mm (23) and (33) in loose/puffed
. Push the ribbon up to form a loop before piercing it to take your needle to the back.
The smaller leaves (towards the top) are made in the same way in 2mm ribbon (33).
Complete the bush with loose French knots in different shades of green cotton thread. Add some blue and green knots above the bush. Wrap the thread two or three times around your needle.
You could also make a few
in the same thread for a fluffy effect between the leaves and roses.
Hope you enjoyed this short tutorial and happy stitching!
