Colonial Stitch Hand Embroidery Tutorial – Needle WorkFebruary 7, 2021
Are you looking for a new stitch to add to your hand embroidery repertoire? Perhaps you want a stitch that looks like a french knot but is a bit different? This tutorial from Polkadots & Blooms demonstrates the colonial knot.
As the author says, the end result looks like french knots but is a bit tighter. Colonial knots can be used to achieve the same result as french knots, but because of the way the knot is formed it has a slightly different look to it. It has a higher profile to it, is a bit more rounded, and is a little bit larger.
From beginning the stitch to finishing it off, the author provides detailed step-by-step instructions along with photos. Not only that, she has a video tutorial as well. You should be able to pick up this new stitch in no time.
It is always nice to learn a new stitch in hand embroidery. New stitches can add another level of dimension and interest to a project.
