hey this is knot stitch,

first form a lengthy chain using double thread,
then a small chain,
pull the loop towards back and punch inbetween the first lengthy chain,[i've shown spliting the chain where to punch],

then again take another lengthy loop from there itself and another small chain,
again towards back inbetween 2nd lenthy chain,

like this, a lengthy chain, a small chain back punch, again lengthy, small and a back punch,

this back punch will form a beautiful knot, this is why it's called knot stitch.

hi friends,
thanks a lot, for giving such a good response,this indeed motivates me to do more, thankyou.

ok today, lets work with mirror,
as i've shown, paste the mirror[synthetic],with fabric glue,
then mark 6 points around the mirror in equal distance,
then connect all points using long chains.
[here my point is not in correct position, so don't take it as matter, you just see the stitch],
after finishing the first round, start the second round inbetween the first two points and finish it,
this is to cover the edges of the mirror seeing out,

then start chain stitch very closly to the mirror, 2 rounds and finish it.
