This looks great! I do a ton of needlework, but I've always found french knots to be very challenging too (glad to know I'm not the only one Smiley ). Awesome job!

Very pretty!  I can't make a french knot to save my life!  It just gets pulled to the back!

As someone who can't get a french knot right to save my life, I bow down to your beautiful knotty trees!  Grin

These are fantastic! I would love to be able to do French knots. How long did it take you to do it?

It's much easier with a frame. Like that you can use your 2 hands and always keep the tension. If you do that, you always succeed them Smiley
