Embroidery pattern 4 - French knots neck design

Hi friends

Today I am here to share the free pattern for this month.  It is an expansion the last months free pattern.  I have expanded it to a neck design for a kurti.  A simple one but  looks elegant.  So on to the design now.

One more thing.  If you are working the french knots for the neckline, make sure that u leave enough space for stitching.  I have stitched it too close to the neck where the fabric is being cut for stitching.  At the time of stitching it becomes big trouble and the french knots were all collapsed.  Then I removed all the french knots and embroidered the neck line with the herringbone stitch.  I will  update this post with the stitched kurti once it is done.

Now the pattern

Stitches used
Round flowers - French knots (6 strands ) - I wind the thread one time over the needle
Leaves - Leaf stitch - 3 strands
Stem - Stem stitch - 3 strands
For the neck line french knots of pink and blue stitch alternatively.

Threads Used  - Anchor
For flowers - 63 (Pink)
Stem and Leaves - 150 (blue)

For the next months free pattern I am working on a kantha embroidery border pattern.  So do watch my space.
