Knotted Cable chain is used as a linear stitch on both plain and even-weave fabrics. The texture of the knot between chain stitches creates an interesting textured line. As with basic chain stitch this version follows curves well and can even be worked solidly as a filling stitch.
How to work Knotted Cable Chain
Slip the needle under the top thread above the twist.
Do not pick up any fabric when you do this. Pull the needle through the loop until the loop lies flat but not tight.
Take the needle through the fabric bringing the point of the needle out a short space along the line to be stitched. With the thread wrapped under the needle point pull the needle through the fabric.
Pull the thread through the fabric and you have created your first knotted cable chain stitch.
