Do you know this stitch?

Hi everyone!!

Thank you everyone for the lovely comments on the ruffled skirt. The little lady wore it to school and proudly announced that it was made by her mom :)  Happy, happy me :)

Back to embroidery now... Here's a video I came across during my meanderings in YouTube.

This quick post is to ask you if you know the stitch shown in this video.  I just can't seem to identify the stitch name in English. The name of the stitch in the video is Ponto eletrico (Spanish? Portuguese?)  It is a mix of twisted chain to the top and simple chain to the bottom. Do you remember seeing this somewhere?

It's getting rather cold here and has been raining for the past few days. The toughest part is to venture out and buy groceries - requires a lot of convincing oneself that if you don't go you'll not have anything to eat . Missing our car ,the next door local grocery stores and even the variety of home deliveries in India - we even used to have the option to call the beautician to our home :)

Well , life is all about different experiences and learning to value what we have :) I love the fall colors and the disciplined life here :)

Don't forget to tell me if you know the stitch..
Update : So, finally I have the stitch name --- and it is Braid Stitch. ..phew!! Thanks everyone for trying to help out. Margaret & Carol, you both got it right!!! As Carol wrote, I love a good mystery and it was fun while it lasted :)

Love,luck and sunshine,
