Bring the ribbon to the front of your work and wrap it around the needle the same as for the French knot. Keep the wrap on the needle, turning it towards where you initially brought the needle through and then pierce the ribbon evenly to create a gathering stitch until you reach the end. Take the needle back through the fabric as close as possible to the entry point and pull the ribbon through carefully. The French knot will tighten as the gather pulls up to form the rose.
