The Loveliness of a French Knot

You know how sometimes a certain item catches your eye and then it seems you see that item everywhere? For my husband it happens with cars. For me it happens with DIY projects. Well, my eye has been lingering on French Knot creations. They are absolutely beautiful. Take a gander at some of my favorites:


flower garden via Needle n' Thread customized pillow via Threadbanger


sheep via incy wincy stitches connect the dot pillows via Purl Bee


french knot monogram via Fourteen Countess


For instructions on how-to make a french knot, I have two awesome tutorials for you:

This tutorial is entirely made up of pictures showing you step by step instructions

How-To Make a French Knot with Needle n' Thread
This is a video tutorial and my favorite of the two. The presenter does the knot slowly six different times which really helped me.

Happy Knotting!
