First Successful Oya Flower

Thanks to Time Warner and Earthlink, I have had lots of time to practice my knotting while I waited for a new cable modem to get back on line. The result is my first successful oya flower shown above. I have not tracked down the thread that the Turkish oya makers use, but found "F" Silke made by Utica to be a decent choice for oya. You could also use size 70 cotton crochet thread.


  1. That sure is a tiny flower. What size hook did you use?

  2. No hook. It is done with a sewing needle and thread that is the size of thick sewing thread.
