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.) copyright 2002 CDA Member Firms
