Stitch tutorial - Single knotted cable chain stitch

This stitch has a wonderful texture which is what I like the most. If you want some texture then use this stitch instead of daisy or detached chain stitch.

Step 1 – Bring the needle and thread up at 'a' , go down at 'b' and come up at 'c'.

Step 2 – Make a twisted chain stitch as shown.

Step 3 – Pass the needle and thread under the stitch to your left without picking up the fabric and pull the needle.

Step 4 – Go down between 'a' and 'b' . Bring the needle and thread up slightly above 'c'.

Step 5 – Make a chain as shown.

Step 6 - Secure the chain with a tying stitch as shown.

The length of the chain stitch,both the number and length of the trying stitch can be varied to achieve a different effect.

                                                                  Hope y'all will have fun working different variations of this stitch!

I will try it at once and note it down in my stitch diary book which I started lately - because I do not always have internet at hand.
I specially love the last picture, the stitch with the three "arms".
