Here is Karen Cabrera’s sample and explanation:

Karen Dora Young Knot Stitch

The technique is really simple.A picot gauge will yield best results.

1 shuttle wound with 2 threads, or one double shuttle (SH1), and another one acting as ball wound with single thread (SH2).
First round: Tie all threads together
with SH1 using SH2 as ball thread:  *make first half of ds, flipped, and then the second half of the ds, unflipped (lock stitch) Leave enough space for joining and repeat*. Leave a long space (3/4 inch) and repeat. for as long as you want.
Second round:  coming form long space, <make  first half of ds, flipped, and then the second half of the ds, unflipped, join to space in previous round,  first half of ds, flipped, and then the second half of the ds, unflipped>. Leave long space, repeat *-*. Leave long space. repeat <->
