Buttonhole-knot rose

Today, I'm going to teach you on how to embroider a beautiful buttonhole-knot rose.Firstly, make a 3-wrap french knot.Encircle this french knot with 4 small loops.The loops shouldn't be too tight or too loose.If you like, you can make a small stitch at the end of each loop.This is to prevent one loop from pulling another when the buttonhole knots are made.

Make buttonhole knots to fill each loop.

For the next round of petals, sew bigger loops.

This is how the rose will look like.

This is my attempt to make a bigger rose.Here, instead of one, I've used 2 strands of thread for each loop, to get bigger petals.

Isn't this rose a beauty?You can try to make a bigger one, if you like.
