Braids are a unique way of manipulating your knitting into a 3-D sculpture. They are relatively simple to execute and require just a small amount of planning before beginning. Braids are great for those who like the look of a cable, but don't want to mess around with actually cabling, or for someone who desires a unique "how did you do that?!" kind of project. Most braids are worked with at least three strips that are moved over the center strip from the outside in. These braids are worked with a clever combination of twists and folds that are physically different but visually similar.
