Started with three the basic interlaced cable chain stitch samples by varying the distance between two rows of cable chain stitches. This fabric helps in maintaining the uniformity of the stitches which is crucial for the interlacing.

Worked some upright crosses over the interlacing on the first sample. this led to try working interlacing over the interlacing, the second sample is the interlacing in progress.
