I have worked the French knots on Santa's hat and sleeve cuff. I have put in the first step on his coat and sleeve with a four way continental. I had to order a couple of threads so I am working with what I have to get this fun guy started. His French knots are done with 5 strands of white Splendor in a 3 wrap knot. The continental is done is a size 16 Kreinik.
