Buttonhole Wheel Stitch is a simple stitch that is used as a simple flower. It is pretty simple and easy to work.
What you will need?
- Any fabric.
- Embroidery hoop, 15cm (6″) (Bigger if you are working on a larger design) ( You can purchase a set of 6 hoops from Amazon for your basic needs.)
- Tapestry needle
- Embroidery thread (You can buy this pack of 36 shades of the DMC embroidery floss.)
How many strands of floss do you need for making the Buttonhole Wheel?
You can use all 6 strands of the floss. But if you are working on a finer design, then start with 2 strands of floss and increase the number of strands according to your design. I have used all 6 strands for making this stitch.

1. Start by bringing the thread up at point A. Pull the thread up and insert the needle from point B to point C as shown in the above picture. Keep the thread beneath the needle as shown above.
