Friday Homework for Lesson 63: French Knotted Chain Stitch

I enjoyed working with this stitch, but the key is to have the fabric stretched tight in a hoop.

I didn't add a line of French Knotted Chain Stitch on the linen tablecloth.
Instead I worked a chain on the Teal Tailoring Wool Scribble Cloth.

  1. Interesting that it is best worked in a hoop. So many of the chain stitch variations are best worked in the hand!

    1. I agree that the Chain Stitch is best worked in the hand, BUT the French Knot will not knot well if it is not in a hoop. (That was mouthful of not knots!)

    1. Yes, time flies too fast, my sewing can't keep up. I have to prepare tomorrow's Sunday Stitch School lesson now.

  3. This one worked up nicely on the curve.

    1. Yes, it does, and it is nice to know as some stitches don't take curves well.

  4. Nicely done. I think I may struggle with this one as I don't normally use a hoop.

    1. Well, maybe you are already an expert of making French Knots in the hand? Then there should be no problem. I just CAN'T.
