Coronation Rose Embroidery

Coronation Rose Embroidery is not discussed often in any of my old books and when it is, very little is written about it. The following information was found in Lessons in Embroidery, published by Brainerd & Armstrong, in 1899. The article has been edited for use on this site.

About This Embroidery

This embroidery uses Coronation braid and French Knots to produce beautiful roses. It’s finished product resembles ribbon work. The completed rose is quite beautiful and can be used on wide array of projects.

Embroidery Instructions

Begin the rose by making a few French knots with two threads in the needle of the color desired for the center of the rose, then take the end of the coronation braid close to the knots and wind the braid around the knots until the stamping for the rose is covered, catching the braid with a stitch here and there to keep it in place. When the rose is completed cut the braid and catch the end under the loops already formed.
