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.
