Stem Stitch Rose
Begin with a French Knot, A.
Work from the knot toward the outside of the flower.
Bring the needle to the top at 1 and down at 2 and up again at 3.
(Point 3 will be midway between 1 and 2.) Gently pull the ribbon to the top at 3.
Repeat by inserting the needle at 4 and up at 5. Keep the ribbon loose as you work your way around the flower.
(B through I or more.)
