Braid horizontal 2-colored

aka Lateral braid, aka Estonian Vikkel braid
Working a horizontal braid creates a line of horizontally-aligned knit stitches. You can do single or multicolored Vikkel braid. This video is showing a multicolored braid.

Start by casting on a new stitch before the first stitch.
*Knit with col 1 into the back of the 2nd stitch. Then knit with col 2 into the 1st stitch. Drop both stitches off the left needle. Slip the first stitch on right needle back onto the left needle, knit with col 2 into the back of the 2nd stitch. Then knit with col 1 into the 1st stitch. Drop both stitches off the left needle. Slip the first stitch on right needle back onto the left needle *. Repeat *-* until last st on row. K last st, and pass next to last st over.

This was excellent instruction, however I want to do a two coloured braid without having the newly introduced colour showing on the following row, which is what happens with this method.

Hello, thank you for this video!- With your help, I managed to do the vikkel braid. But I have a question: the row after having done the vikkel braid, the stitches are much "longer2 than normal and when I knit them , they look like little holes. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Dear Claudia, you can try to tighten the thread a bit more when working the vikkel braid. Happy knitting!
