How to knit a Latvian braid

Tags: cable, mittens, socks,

In this DROPS video we show how to knit a Latvian braid. We have already knitted 1 latvian braid in the video.

You knit a Latvian braid as follows:
Braid consists of 3 rounds , worked as follows (color 1 = green, color 2 = old pink ):
ROUND 1: * K 1 with color 1, K 1 with color 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round.
ROUND 2: Place both strands in the front of piece (towards you). Then move color 1 strand to the back, P 1 and move the strand to the front again. Pull color 2 strand underneath color 1 strand and then move color 2 to the back, P 1 and move the strand to the front again. Continue like this with P alternately with color 1 and color 2 but always place the strand underneath the strand from the last st worked.
ROUND 3: Work as 2nd round but now place strand always OVER strand from the last st worked.

Salve a voi ! Vorrei sapere se questa treccia si lavora solo con ferri tubolari oppure può essere riprodotta anche con i ferri dritti . Lo chiedo perché ho provato tante volte, ma con i ferri normali non mi riesce.

Buonasera Antonella, purtroppo abbiamo il video solo per la lavorazione in tondo. Buon lavoro!

Sieht super aus :), Danke für die tolle Flecht-Idee! Diese zweifarbige Verzopfung kommt an meine nächste Mütze in "Nepal". In die Blende stricke ich dann Bäumchen oder Eichhörnchen ein. Eine geniale Alternative zu Spannfäden. Toll.

En video som viser slå-op teknikken, (magisk ring) der bruges til bl.a. Vanterne m. Lettisk snoning ønskes snarest, da jeg ikke kan gennemskue opskriftens tekst. Vh. Tina Seliger

Hei Tina. Om du ser på alle videoene som er lagt til votten med Latvisk flette, så finner du en video som heter: "Hvordan legge opp med en sirkel". Ta en titt på den og følg teksten i oppskriften, så får du hjelp. God Fornøyelse
