Sunday Stitch School - Lesson 154: Plucked Knot Stitch

There are many stitches made up of knots. Today's stitch is a good cross between a French Knot and a Bullion Knot. 

I found it at the excellent online stitch dictionary, Sarah's Hand Embroidery Tutorial


Work it like this:

Fasten the thread on the back.

Take a small bite of the fabric
next to where the thread comes out.

Wrap the needle two or three times,
(as you would a Bullion Knot)

Pull through.

Anchor close to the knot.

One knot looks good,

Several knots look better!
Can you see that they are baby 
Bullion Knots?

Homework:
Add to these samplers

  2. Love the idea of baby bullions - I find the grown-ups a bit taxing!

  3. Very simple, very nice in a group and will have lots of areas where they act as fillers.

  4. Well, that one doesn't look too hard, and might be a fun filler ... maybe flower centers...

  5. Yes, I can see it as a flower center too!

  6. I'm going to try that one next time I'm stitching! It does look interesting, and would be great for flower buds, I think.

  7. Wow! Thank you for mentioning me! I learnt this stitch from my mother. She would use this stitch to fasten the finished thread behind the fabric using this stitch. I realized that this is a tiny bullion and works perfect for those who find French Knots annoying. :)
