To begin with draw a small circle of your desired size. I usually prefer a circle of I.5 cm diameter. As chemanthi flower have many petals you too can make as many petals as you like on a circle.
In this tutorial I have used 2 strands of silk thread.
NOTE: Whenever you pass the needle from the centre of the circle it should pass on the same point so that when flower complets a hole is formed in the centre of the flower like in the buttonhole flower.
In my video tutorial I have mentioned stitches like 1,2,3 and 4.
Each petal is formed with four stitches.
Now pass the needle at point5 just below the circle beside the point1. and bring up at point6. Don't confuse here. Point2 and point6 falls on the same point. This is the stitch3.
Here completes the chemanthi stitch.
Drop a line letting me know how many of you got the stitch so that it helps me to give new tutorials. If you got any doubts while learning the stitch let me know I will help you.
