French Knot Color Wheel

I have always loved the look of projects consisting entirely of French knots but they always seemed like they would take way more patience than I have. About 6 weeks ago I had the idea to make a French knot color wheel using a 3″ hoop. I figured that it wouldn’t be as much of an undertaking working with a tiny hoop. Let me tell you, it still took a long, long time.

I worked on it pretty diligently for a few weeks and then set it aside. The 30 for 30 crafting challenge inspired me to pick it back up and finish it. I started focusing all my efforts on it and finally stitched my last French knot.

I really love how it turned out, it’s exactly what I wanted. I have a pile of amazing embroideries I’ve gotten from various swaps that I intend to hang up by my desk, I think this little guy will join them all.

    This looks amazing! I’ve been following your progress on Instagram. 🙂 I think I am the only person who cannot do a French knot, I’ve tried but it never comes out right lol!

    Wow, I am seriously impressed. Although I don’t have any plan to attempt anything like this, even though I don’t hate french knots, it just looks so time consuming! Well done for finishing it 🙂

    This is just stunning! I’ve been seeing your progress on Instagram and it made me happy every time 🙂 I’d love to do an all French knot project sometime — I love them so much.

      I worked small so I was able to see some good progress which helped me stay motivated. I don’t think I could do a really big piece even though it would be really cool.

    I think this is my favorite project of your most recent stuff, I can’t even fathom the work involved in most of your projects, but that many french knots! I love rainbows, and the texture is amazing!
