I used French Knots for the star. I used six strands of cotton floss for each French Knot. The red is DMC no. 666, the blue is DMC no. 823 and the white is DMC blanc.
The lettering is down using Whipped Back Stitch. The brown floss is perle cotton, DMC no. 801. The gold is Kreinik blending filament, Kreinik no. 002HL. I love the Kreinik blending filament - it is very easy to work with! I used two strands of the filament for the whipping.
This turned out really nice - I love the way the French Knots filled in the star shape!
