Repeat from * until required length!

Lobster stitch cord
Don't know why it's so called but the finished cord sure looks like the body of a centipede to me!
Start as shown in diagram (1) & (2) of 'parallel chain' cord.
yo, draw though loops on hook, *twist work to the left (2), insert hook as shown in (3),
yo, draw though loops as shown (4), yo, draw though loops on hook,
repeat from * until required length.
