Here is one of the easiest and famous stitch: The Cobra Stitch, also called the Solomon Bar or the Portuguese Sinnet, and there might be more names. It's modified version is the King Cobra Stitch (a.k.a. Double Solomon Bar, Double Portuguese Sinnet, etc.).
It is very simple so I recommend this knot for the begginers who have just entered the world of Decorative Knots (or just the world of knots is fine too). Here I have added a picture collage of how to make the cobra and king cobra stitch. Follow the collage to make the stitch.
Later on I will post a few stuff I made with this knot. But right now, learn the knot. From the 9th picture the King Cobra Stitch starts. The King Cobra is basically just the cobra done over itself, leaving space for 1 of the first cobra stitchs to be seen.
