Braided Knitting

Today, I’m going to present instructions on how to knit a braid–or rather, how to cable braid. The prerequisite for learning how to cable braid is knowing how to cable front and cable back. If you’re not sure how to do these, you can find great videos on how to cable with a cable needle here or without a cable needle here; and on how to cable front here, and how to cable back here. I even found a couple videos on how to create a cable braid here and here.

But to knit the specific cable braid pictured on the cardigan at left, and if you know how to cable already, follow the instructions below. These directions are a variation on the Cable Cardigan in Venezia Sport by Vera Sanon from Cascade Yarns.
