This is one of my go-to stitches for adding texture and dimensions. It’s even a favorite stitch, but I save it for certain types of areas.
They do take a while to make. One tip I can offer is that I often put multiple strands on the needle so there is more thread on the fabric in less time.
Using it for furry creatures is one of my favorite applications.
And fluffy sheep of course.
I’ve used it as fur trim on clothing for my characters too. It’s a nice detail.
Turkey knots make great bird’s nests too. I love this look.
This stitch can be for bee bodies too!
There are some other types of applications too like a fringe on a jelly fish!
Or grass is a great place for a few turkey knots.
And finally as hair on a little character.
Turkey knot is a great stitch with many uses. If you aren’t sure how your threads will look on the fabric, try making a little sampler with different thread types and see how they turn out!
