Josephina Knot

The foundation for the Josephina Knot is a little more complicated that the other foundations. It employs the help of a pin to hold the loop in place until the first round of interweaving is completed after which the 'legs' hold each loop securely. The stitch is completed by following the original thread path twice more.

This was one of my favourite stitches both to work and in appearance.

Happy Stitching

I can see why it's your favorite! I love it!

I was very taken with it, too, although the first one I did was dreadfully mangled!
