TDiTM Stitch #15
Reference: Twelve Dozen Stitches in Twelve Months
The idea for this little stitch is a stack of snowballs. Not real ones, thank goodness! I love snow, but not when I'm sick and can't get outside to enjoy the beauty.
I'm not happy with the execution of this little stitch, as the little French knots would not behave and cluster together as I wished...even the seed beads didn't want to play nice! Hmmmm...perhaps it was all the cough medicine I was taking?
In any case, I hope the chart is enough for you to see the intend of the stitch. And, I hope you have better luck in getting your stitch to behave correctly!
I did not add the little straight stitches to the beaded version because I didn't think that they added to the design very much.
