Stitch: Left or Right Latvian Braid Knit

A stitch technique that can add to your knitting, especially striking in black and white or contrast colors. First learned by video doing an “Inspira” pattern – free pattern on Ravelry – it is easy once learned. Here is a video by “Knitty Melissa” via YouTube, as it’s easier to watch and learn, then do.

Variations are endless and the end results look more woven than knit. Another term for the method is Baltic braid. More tutorials and ways knitters have used this in projects on Pinterest.
