**Summary: **

Each knot invariant can be extended to singular knots according to the skein rule. A Vassiliev invariant of order at most $n$ is defined as a knot invariant that vanishes identically on knots with more than $n$ double points. A chord diagram encodes the order of double points along a singular knot. A Vassiliev invariant of order $n$ gives rise to a function on chord diagrams with $n$ chords. Such a function should satisfy some conditions in order to come from a Vassiliev invariant. A weight system is a function on chord diagrams that satisfies the so-called $4$-term relations. Given a Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ equipped with a nondegenerate invariant bilinear form, one can construct a weight system with values in the center of the universal enveloping algebra $U(\mathfrak{g})$. In this paper, we calculate $\mathfrak{sl}_3$ weight system for chord diagram whose intersection graph is complete bipartite graph $K_{2,n}$.
