3.Again this stitch is worked vertically in the first row,, the starting point of the knot is taken from the centre of the previously worked knotted cable stitch. Arrow stitch variation and knotted cable stitches are worked in the second row. Two feather stitches are worked after knotted cable stitches in the third row.

4.Rimjim thread is laced through the individual knotted cable stitches in the first row. This stitch is worked over straight stitches in the second row,[ I was hoping for butterfly chain effect here, but the twisted chain was tricky]. The last row of this stitch is worked with pistil stitches.

I seem to have been working only on TAST challenge these past few weeks. Still I am looking forward to TAST2013 challenge. I never thought, I’ll work all the stitches of this year’s challenge, but slowly I made progress and today the total length of my TAST 2012 stitch samplers is 43 FEET!
I did not aim for anything in particular, just hoped I’ll complete all the stitches.
Though some stitches were repeated and was worked again, I always learnt something new. To give a life to an idea was an uplifting experience. After looking at the new sample, a new idea formed again. This was a wonderful learning process.
The way other people shared their creative endeavours also motivated me.my heartfelt thanks to SharonB for making all these things possible.
Eager to start TAST 2013!

Knotted cable stitch is the 51st week stitch of the TAST 2012 challenge by SharonB.
I had done this stitch sampler earlier on this challenge under the heading of chain stitch varieties. I had some incomplete stitches from earlier TAST challenges, of which four were chosen and worked  on this chain stitch varieties.
This being last stitch of this challenge, a small sampler would be a nice finishing touch. The sampler as of today-

1.Not remembering exactly how the stitch was done [after working the sampler!] I wanted to work the basic knotted cable stitch in the first row, and individual knotted cable stitches are worked in the second row. The starting point of the following k.cable stitch was taken inside the preceding stitch in the third row. If it is too confusing, the picture tells all.

2.Combining this stitch with oyster stitch in the first row, cleared the mix-up of these two stitches. Individual knotted cable stitches are worked with Algerian eye stitches in the second row and Cretan stitch in the third row.

Today I worked some more samples of knotted cable chain stitch.
4-after working a row of this stitch, I added pink seed beads over the knot. Tried adding two beads to see the effect.

5-in these three rows I tried changing the angle of the knot and the chain
a-the knots were done in an angle and the chains were worked in straight line.
b-the knots here were worked on straight line and the chains were worked in an angle.
c- in this row the knots and the chains are perpendicular to each other. The working of the row is not good.

With these samples I am completing my knotted cable chain stitch sampler. Tomorrow , starting with checkered chain stitch.

The next stitch in the varieties of chain stitch, is knotted cable chain stitch. This was the 48th week’s stitch of the TAST Challenge by SharonB.
I had never tried this stitch before, my samples in this picture are mainly to get the feel of the stitch. I have tried varying the length of the knot and the chain in these rows.

These three rows, I have combined this stitch with normal chain, twisted chain and open chain stitches.
