“Millcross” Knotwork Embroidery (In Progress)

In fall 2019, I wanted to improve my embroidery, so I drew a knotwork design that I decided to fill using a combination of satin stitch and split stitch. It’s still in progress, as knotwork takes a long time!

Figured out that outlining first helps support satin stitch!
