Start by making a short straight stitch. 1-2
Take the needle out a bit further down. 3
Then let the needle pass underneath that straight stitch, without going through the fabric.
Insert the needle at 3
and come out a bit further down at 4
Insert at 4.
Out at 5.
You now have a double Chain Stitch.
Next, let the needle pass underneath the upper chain of that double Chain Stitch, without going through the fabric.
Insert at 5.
Out at 6.
You now have another double Chain Stitch.
Repeat in the same way 6-7, and always let the needle go underneath TWO Chain Stitches.
Does it look complicated? With a bit a practice, it will become easier.
It creates a beautiful braided line and looks good on curves so it would be perfect for monograms or text.
For stump work, it would make a beautiful knitted sweater if worked in a row of columns.
There are two names in Swedish: 1) Täta Maskstygn, eller 2) Kedjesöm under en länk. Is there a name in your language for this stitch?
Yes, according to Mattia (thank you) it is : point de chainette serré ou pt de chainette cordé
