How to make a 3 strand plait

• Cut 3 strands of yarn 11⁄2 times longer than required finished length. e.g. For a 10cm plait you will need to cut the strands 15cm long.

• Knot the strands together at one end and secure this end with a pin to hold plait firmly as you work.

• Take left strand A to the middle over the middle strand, then take right strand C over the middle strand.

• Continue moving the left and right strands over the middle strand until the plait is long enough.

• Tie a knot to secure end.
