• 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.
