Four Sided Knot Ornament

Suggested retail $4

This chart is available from your local retailer. The chart includes instructions for stitching and stitching with beads. Each version comes out looking very different. Following are ideas for finishing your piece.

Cross Stitched and beaded version

I made my own cording using DMC 3833. Take two strands, have someone else hold one end of two of the pieces, cut about three times as long as you want the hanger. Twist in one direction until the cord kinks and wants to fold in on itself. Let it do so and secure both ends so it doesn't unravel,smoothing out bunches.

Cross Stitched version

  • 00252 Iris Seed Bead
  • Two green large round beads
  • Two smaller round beads
  • Two lavender round beads

Beading order: 3 seeds, small green, 3 seeds, big green, 3 seeds, lavender round, 3 seeds, small green, add seeds until it is almost the length you want it then reverse.
