Description - Little Book of Parterre and Knot Gardens in French Knots by Christine Harris
This volume features ten parterre and knot gardens presented in the French knot stitch. Parterre gardens are highly formal in design, usually symmetrical and typically found in an English stately home. Knot gardens are horticultural representations of classic rope knots. The author has selected the French knot to work her designs for the ten projects in this volume and considers it the perfect stitch to depict the formality of both garden styles. Each project includes the thread requirements and simple step-by-step instructions on a pattern provided. A photograph of the completed work accompanies each project.
