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.
