I thought I’d start a new series here on the Mostly Knitting (but really all sorts of crafts) Blog and feature some of my favourite things. These things might be YouTube channels, products, classes, blogs, books, whatever takes my fancy.
Today I’d like to feature one of my favourite YouTube channels, “Rose World” from India.
Rose World has only been on YouTube for just over two years, but already has a following of over 260,000 subscribers. The videos are high quality, not language dependent, colourful and inventive.
From the channel description:
In This channel I’m sharing How to stitch, Hand embroidery, Basic Hand Embroidery, Nokshi Embroidery, Nakshi kantha, Neck design, drawing tutorial, etc Video.
I found out about Rose World when this video popped up in my recommended list:
I’m currently playing with the big loopy woven parts on an embroidery sampler.
I’m going to try them in different threads, including needlepoint wool and see how they look.
Rose World also has quite a few videos on making yarn flowers that can be sewn or stuck onto any project. This marigold is one of them.
Traditional nakshi kantha like these borders. I adore nakshi kantha borders 🙂
and modern designs like this flower
Rose World not only has all of these things, but also videos for beginner embroiderers, and instructions on drawing designs so you can customise them any way you like.
