Palestrina Knots with some Sorbello Knots

    Newer Older

    Top row – Pearl No 5 over 4 threads by 4 threads, Row 2 – Pearl No 5 over 3 by 3, Row 3 – Pearl No 5 just different sized stitches, Row 4 – ribbon floss 4 by 4, Row 5 – Cotton a Broder – swinging the long leg to either side, Row 6 - No 5 stitches further apart, Row 7 – No 3 - 5 across by 6 down, Row 8 – No 3 – 5 across by 3 down, Row 9 – No 3 – triple Palestrina Stitch – mostly 6 across by 4 down. I did try a row of Basque Knot but decided it wasn’t different enough to preserve with. Row 10 – Sorbello knot in Pearl No 3 – 4 by 3. Sorbello Knot NEEDS A HOOP. Row 11 - Sorbello knot in Pearl No 5 – 3 by 3, Row 12 – Sorbello knot in Pearl No 5 – 5 by 5, Row 13 - Sorbello knot in 6 strands of stranded cotton – 6 by 6, Right hand side – playing with Palestrina knot. It took me four goes and moral support from Elizabeth of Quieter Moments to get the slanted version working. Initially, tension was a little tricky.

      It seems like you need a thread with some body to it - i.e., heavy perle cottons, to make this stitch behave and show off its knots. Thanks for posting your work!
