Stitch tutorial - Macramé Stitch

Today I'd like to share another lovely stitch tutorial with y'all.
Macramé stitch looks like Palestrina stitch but they are not the same..
Draw 2 lines a couple of mm apart.

Step 1 – Bring the needle and thread up in the lower line at 'a'.

Step 2 – Go down at 'b',come up at 'c' and pull the thread. A diagonal stitch is made.

Step 3 – Pass the needle and thread under the diagonal stitch as shown and pull.

Step 4 – Keeping the loop formed in step 3 to your left pass the needle and thread under the diagonal stitch again as shown.

Step 5 – Pull the needle so that the second loop sits close to the first one on the diagonal stitch.

Step 6 – Make another diagonal stitch slightly closer to the first knot as shown.

Step 7 – The diagonal stitch should look like this.

Step 8 – Repeat steps 3,4 and 5 .

Repeat steps 6,7 and 8 until end.

                              Hope you like this knotted stitch tutorial! Have fun!
Please let me know if there is any particular stitch that you'd like to learn ....

Happy stitching!

It has a nice textured look. I think adding beads would be fun. Thanks

Thank for the tute Anita.
I have just started embroidery on another salwar top and was thinking about line stitches for the neck line.
I'll try this one and post pictures soon.
