USE OUR HANDY STITCH GUIDE TO MAKE THE BRACELET ON PAGE 39
This simple method of chain stitching is worked in reverse.
Make a small straight stitch. Come up at point 1, slide the needle under the small straight stitch, then go down at point 1. Come up at point 2, slide the needle under the previous stitch, then go down at point 2.
They are tricky at first, but with a little practice, bullion knots are useful for creating texture and beautiful flowers in your embroidery!
Come up at point 1, then go down at point 2 and back up at point 1, keeping the needle through the fabric. Wrap the needle until the wrapping is as long as the space between points 1 and 2. If you don’t want the knot to lay flat against the fabric, wrap it a little more.
Holding the wrapping with your nondominant hand, carefully pull the needle through the wrapped thread.
Go down at point 2 and pull the thread until the stitch lays flat.
