How to work Threaded Cable Chain Stitch
Here, I worked the Cable Chain in perle #5 cotton and then laced it with a soft metallic thread.
First work a row of Cable Chain stitch (directions are here)
Use a blunt-ended tapestry needle, so that the foundation threads do not split, and lace a second thread under each of the cable chain stitches.
Lace the length of the row and take the thread to the back of the fabric.
Turn your work bring the thread to the front of your work and lace back along the row.
This stitch follows a curve well and you can add lots of variety by adding interesting threads or beads.
