WIPW - Beads and Knots

There has been just a tiny bit of going forward on the

Crazy for Crazy

project for Work In Progress Wednesday.

I completed this before a nasty cold put a stop to further progress.
There is a pile of pink beads of various sizes,

and on top of the lace I added a number of braided knots.
These were store-bought and on the pack there was no indication of what type of knots they are.
Do you know? Are they Chinese knots, Celtic knots, Monkey Fists or Djellaba knots from Morocco? Maybe Jenni of Jacaranda knows? Or anyone else? If you have any information, I'd be happy to read your comment.

  1. I think they are Turk's Head Knots, but I'm really not sure at all. I like the way the pile of beads brings a bit of height to the panel.

    1. Thank you, Rachel. I had to look up Turk's Head Knot as I had never heard of it. There are too many to choose from!

  5. I agree, beautiful additions.
    The pink knots or roses look like something you've done recently, I'll have to
    look back and see.

    1. I think you mean the Rambling Rose Stitch http://queeniepatch.blogspot.jp/2017/11/sunday-stitch-school-lesson-42-rambling.html
      but actually these are knots made of stiff nylon and look like little balls. I bought them long ago and did not keep the packaging so don't know what they are called or where they were made.

  6. Je dirais également Turk's head knot (bonnet turc en français)

    1. This is what Mattia said: I would also say Turk's head knot (Turkish hat in French)
