Side-view carnation


Please follow these instructions to embroider a carnation, seen from the side.The thread used is pearl cotton no:8.


Embroider a serrated-edged (zig-zag) buttonhole/blanket stitch petal as shown.


Work 2 more layers of zig-zag stitches (total 3 layers).


With 2 strands of thread, work buttonhole knots on the 3 layers.


Gather the buttonhole/blanket stitch petal and embroider satin stitch, done from top to bottom to form a calyx.
