French Knots

This week on TAST it is all about french knots! 
Not long ago, I started a more abstract sampler of sorts.  The idea was to do small sections of one stitch.  The french knots above were completed with a wide variety of threads and yarns in various thickenesses.  I found it interesting to see the variations that resulted, all using 3 wraps.
I don't know that I've perfected french knots but I sure have given it a good try!
To see more samples, visit Pintangle. 
I got carried away again here.

  2. Nice to see so many different french knots together. Especially the bottom rows, the big olive green ones next to the little variegated ones.
