This long named stitch needs to be practiced to be worked comfortably. I am yet to reach that level.
The tutorial for this stitch is available on SharonB’s blog.
I started this sampler with some variations of straight stitch bands.

Working this stitch given by Sharon in the first sample, moved to stitching beads to the lower part of the stitches in the second sample. The beaded knots are alternated in the top and bottom stitches in the third sample [I wonder, whether this can be understood, if not see the picture].

Single row of this stitch is worked over shorter straight stitches in the first sample. Three beaded knots worked together is the variation in the second sample. The third sample has long and short straight stitches worked alternatively, and the fourth sample has angled straight stitches, beaded knotted buttonhole stitches are worked over them…[Phew!]
