“Millcross” Knotwork Embroidery

The finished embroidery, out of the hoop.

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!

Satin stitch looking much better thanks to outlining.

Main embroidery 3/4 complete.

Ballpoint pen sketch on linen with first attempt at satin stitch.

Figured out that outlining first helps support satin stitch!

Millcross base finished; millcross outline and small knotwork in progress.

The main embroidery was finished in May!

Almost done with the border!

The final product!
