Sunday Stitch School. lesson No.117

I have 3 samples of French Knotted Chain stitch today.  The first is on Aida cloth just simple groupings with Perle 8 thread.

For the pink version I used a pink crochet which was a little thicker than the green crochet thread.   Easy and fun

The third version was stitched with a thicker knitting cotton .  I worke, from the top down, a row with a long FKC, and next to it a shorter one so the row was up and down.
I then made a second row over this and than a third row.

For the base of the flower I used a no.12 crochet thread doubled to get a good filling..same French Knotted Chain stitch.  The stem and leaves are also the FKC stitch.

This stitch is addictive and good fun.  I used a removable ink pen but see my iron did not remove all the marks. I can do it later but not here.

Queenie’s lesson for this lovely stitch can be found here

at the bottom of the page.  I hope everyone tries it.  it is not hard at all.

  1. Another fun stitch! As for the removable ink – I never trust that stuff. It has an infuriating habit of coming back when you least expect it.

    • MA, it depends on the brand/type of removable ink you use. This one is really good and my fault that I did not iron it long enough for it to fade away completely. The brand is.. Pilot..FriXon
      The first brand I ever used and washed, came back after drying..repeatedly.

  2. You have really used found the potential of this stitch. Great flowers!

  3. Those look amazing! I am going to have to try that before I switch from CQ to appliqué for the next couple of years. Both of those flowers are so clever! Thanks for sharing what you did.

  4. Thank you Susan, I’m pleased you’ll give them a try. I’ll check them out when you post.
