How to knit a cabled braid

Super good morning to you all!

Just a quick one this morning. Here is a cabled braid that you can use to embellish ready made objects, use as a belt or bookmark etc. You can find my tutorial on how to cable without a cable needle here.

You will need:
Correct size needles for your yarn
Cable needle if using


Cast on 10 stitches
Row 1: Purl all stitches
Row 2: K2, C4F, C4F
Row 3: Purl all stitches
Row 4: C4B, C4B, K2

Repeat these 4 rows until the desired length is reached.

I would keep everything relaxed and cast off  loosely. If you don’t everything gets tight and tricky to do.

Don’t forget, you can email me pictures of your finished pieces (or even just started pieces) at and I’ll pop them up in the gallery on the site.
