Knitting & French knots

Today I decorated a seam on block 8 for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create with a piece of knitting. I found the pattern on Ravelry. The original pattern was for a lace bracelet, but I used 1,25 mm needles and size 12 thread to get the right size for my block. This lace is 2½ cm or 1 inch wide. I attached it with French knots in perle 5.
Take a closer look at this seam here.
