My rope bowl with fsl butterfly from stitch delight. I could not find the correct rope so made my own with string and french knitting made with 14 meters of french knitting while watching TV in the evenings all in all I made 21 meters using 9 x40 meter balls of string. It turned out okay

This is so lovely--I don't know what french knitting is but you sure found a beautiful way of doing this project. Something for me to Google I guess.

Very smart of you! I love the delicate butterfly and SD designs. You did magnificent with the butterfly and the bowl. I can’t find the cotton rope here either or I would have tried these bowls before now. I don’t knit but think you are genius to make your own.

Never heard of French knitting. Seeing the bowl I guess it's what we used to do on a wooden thread spool where dad hammered in 4 nails or what's called I-cord nowadays?

Anyway, your bowl looks great!

Thanks for your kind words ... I must admit I did go on utube to refresh my mind as to how the start. But it came back quite quickly

Oh my! This will become your favorite bowl. I remember twisting rope as a young child, but never did I make the rope. Really beautiful and extra special.

I'd say it turned out much better than OK. I love the texture of your rope. I hope you make many more of these bowls. They are beautiful.

What a great idea and the result looks fantastic. What kind of material did you use to create the cord?

3 comments
carolpountney by carolpountney 01 Oct 2021

the cord is string which I made using French knitting

crafter2243 by crafter2243 01 Oct 2021

I know about French knitting just wondered if you had used crochet cotton or what the string was made of.

toogie by toogie 02 Oct 2021

I am curious as well, although I don’t knit.
