Honestly, I’m not very good in knitting, but this kind of knot is so easy to do that I couldn’t resiste trying it
Once you startusing this knot you will want to apply it for decorating fabric objects in your home! In this post we will use it for a pin cushion.

FRENCH KNOT EMBROIDERED HEARTS
Q Snap Frame (if you don’t have one, you can easily make one with an old frame or with cardboard – Milliner Needle – Embroidery Floss – Pre Stamped Fabric
Depending on the type of embroidery floss you select, you may need to separate them. I used JP Coats and separated it to 3 strands to create my french knots.
Prepare your sewing needle with thread, making sure that the thread is not too long and has a small knot at the end. Assemble your embroidery hoop or frame with fabric.
Starting from behind your embroidery hoop, pull needle and thread to the front of the fabric.
Wrap floss around the needle 2 or 3 times. Personally, I like the knot size 3 produces. Be sure to hold floss tightly so that it stays wrapped around the needle, (see picture above).
With your opposite hand, push the needle through the front to the back side of the fabric. Be sure to get as close as possible to the original exit point. Apply slight pressure and hold floss tight while pulling needle through, (see picture above).
Repeat until yoou finish your drawing.
