    I enjoyed that video and the instructions were very clear, thanks! It was also nice to see someone knit as I do, not the continental.

    Thank you for the clear video and excellent instructions for the braided stitch! I just love it when something looks much more complicated than it really is 🙂

    Thank you so much for posting this video. I ripped back my braid many times trying to follow the written instructions in a pattern. Row 3 was the one that made no sense at all. Now it does. And it really was straightforward once I saw it being done. Thanks again!

    This would make a nice finished edge even in one color. Thanks for such a clear video; great editing too! One thing that would help is to show slowly how you’re switching the yarns in your right hand.
