I ❤ embroidery . . . Pistil stitch- Also known as: Long french knot. This is a decorative stitch. We can also say it is a motif stitch which can be used for the purpose of making flower pistils or similar looking patterns. There is not much hassle in doing the pistil stitch and is just a variation of the french knot. I would say, pistil stitch is to french knot just the way long tailed daisy is to lazy daisy! The only difference is a little longer tail.
