Tuesday means that it is time to announce Stitch 17 in the TAST 2018 challenge. This week the stitch is French Knots.
French Knots are lovely on their own, or as little accents in part of a design Many people have a frustrating time learning this stitch, so visit my tutorial on How to work French Knots, as, apart from step by step photos, I have written up some tips to help you.
Beyond TAST is for those readers who have done TAST before or for people who already know the basic embroidery stitches. Details about the current Beyond TAST challenge are here
How to take part in the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge
If you are new to hand embroidery the challenge is to learn how to do French Knots and share what you have learnt. If you are an experienced embroiderer enjoy the Beyond TAST challenge instead. Try and give your work a modern twist and share it online so beginners can see what can be done with a little imagination.
