If you are looking for a textured round flower, this one is for you! You can vary the density of this flower easily and add more or fewer knots to adjust the texture to a level you like.

Embroider the circle

First, make long stitches across the circle. To achieve even lines, make sure you always cover the center point. It helps to mark this point before stitching.

I like to stitch the first axis of stitches first to have guidelines. From there you add more stitches like cutting a round cake.

 

The second round of stitches is worked slightly shorter. This creates a dense middle part and slightly more open outer part.

Adding the knots

After embroidering the lines, add the accents with french knots. Spread them evenly or randomly at the ends of the long and short lines.
