The French Knot stitch is often used for flowers, curly hair or beards, and animal coats. It can be packed densely in a space for maximum effect, or used as an airy border or stem. Traditional technique wraps the thread only once around the needle – for a larger French knot, a thicker fiber is used. It can used with or instead of a Colonial knot, which wraps the thread around the needle in a figure eight motion.
