Rope stitch is probably the most rich looking embroidery stitch of this family. It follows a series of closed up twisted chain stitches to form an embossed rope look. You need to know the twisted chain stitch to be able to do the rope stitch.

Travel tip. Sew a few stitches on a towel and keep your toiletry dry. A fun gift idea, too. DIY...These would make great gifts for the travelers in my life :)
