Tutorial: Net Knots

 Net knots is nothing but a variation of detached buttonhole stitch, one more beautiful stitch from buttonhole stitch family. The stitch is ideal to fill  the large areas like flower petals.



To start, work buttonhole stitch from  the bottom of the design.
#. Take care to  work uniform loops and dont pull  the thread too tight.




Bring up the needle just above the first layer of buttonhole stitch.

  Now pass the needle under the first  loop of the  buttonhole layer which is just below the working thread and pull through.. take care not to pick the fabric.

first loop will be formed.
 Again pass the needle under the same loop and pull through.

one net knot is formed.
 Again pass the needle under the second loop of the previous buttonhole layer and pull through.
Pass the needle through the fabric and bring it up to the next line.
 Pass the needle under the loop of the preceding layer of the buttonhole stitch..
 .
.....
Once again pass the needle under the same loop and pull through. Repeat the same till you reach the other end. Now pass the needle through the fabric and bring just above
Repeat the same till you reach the other end. Like this you have to work to and fro till the design is completely filled.

 Once you completed  filling design, bring up the needle above the top layer of the design and pass the needle through the fabric of the first loop. Bring up the needle above the second loop and pass it through fabric in the second loop. Repeat till you reach the other end. This fixes all the net knots and filling looks neat
.
Now work the outline with chain stitch or stem stitch.










#. To work on irregular shapes you can add or skip the buttonhole loops as and when needed per the design.

you can see my project with this stitch  here.

Hope this tutorial helps you. If so drop a line and I will be glad if you share your experiments/projects with me here.

Have a  nice day..
