My Sweet Prairie Studio / Art by Monika Kinner-Whalen: - - - Saturday Stitches - - -A Colonial Knot is a little different that a French Knot. It doesn't make that little doughnut. It makes a good tied knot but wrapping the needle in a figure eight.
The colonial knot is one of several knotted stitches used in embroidery and is commonly used in Candlewicking embroidery. It can be worked individually, in groups as a filling, or along a line or path.
