After working a few more variations of knotted loop stitch, the stitch sampler was completed. The third part of the sampler-

9. the same stitch variation as leaf patterns continue and are worked with herringbone stitch and stem stitch in the first two rows. I tried bringing the needle four or five times out from the same hole ,this working as fan is repeated as line stitch in the last row.

I was surprised by the variation worked in the last row. the knots produce a braided effect, which makes the stitch more decorative.

Though an easy stitch, the knots had to be fixed to make them neat. Most of the time I did not care to do that, so my stitches are not uniform. This is still a lovely stitch which gives scope for experiments.
