Bullion Knot

Bullion KnotI've been hand embroidering as a hobby for many years at this point. I always love when I discover a new stitch and I especially like the bullion knot. This stitch is similar to the french knot in that it involves wrapping the thread around the needle before it is pulled through the fabric. But instead of a knot in a single spot, the bullion knot is extended for the length of a stitch. The effect of this stitch is quite unique as it provides a different type of depth and texture to your embroidery. It can create beautiful flowers and plant designs. Like the French knot, it does require some practice to get the hang of it. The secret is keeping tension on your thread and not releasing too early. But once you do learn how to do it, you'll be able to incorporate this beautiful stitch into your designs.
