Lazy Daisy stitch

Chenille needle
Embroidery needle
Embroidery Floss in DMC
Yellow floss 741
cream ribbon
Complementary Ribbon for 937 & 956

Using 9741 floss, make a french knot.

Using 956 pink, thread two plies of embroidery floss on an embroidery needle. Bring it up as near to the knot (at the blue dot in the picture). Form a loop and hold it in place with your finger or a second needle.Pull the needle through the linen to form a petal - shaped loop.
Holding the loop with your finger, place the needle as close as you can to where you brought the needle up. Bring the needle through to the back of the linen. You've formed a lazy daisy stitch, perfect for flowers, chains and borders!
