Braided Video Tutorials

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I whipped up a few videos showing how to work up the Braided scarf. It is in four parts and here they are!

There you go! I hope this is fun to watch and most of all that the videos are helpful.

    Thanks so much. I knew how to do each step but it was helpful to see it all put together as I am a very visual learner. Thanks for keeping me knitting.

    In the pattern it says to use US 17 needles, and in the tutorial it looks like you are using smaller needles than 17 and they are circular. Is my scarf going to look different than yours if I use what is recommended in the pattern? thanks- stacy

    Hey Susan,

    Thanks for the video! I got some useful tips from it.

    One thing…The pattern for Braided says to braid the I-cord “until the cord with the attached yarn ends up on the right side,” but in the video you’ve braided until it’s on the left side.

    Wow. I am so impressed with your knitting style. I have never seen this done. I have always done it the old fashioned way. I will have to give it a try as I find the “other” way does get rather bulky.

    Where or how did you learn of this method?

    This is so incredibly helpful! Such an awesome scarf, but I haven’t knitted in years and wouldn’t have remembered how to even begin it. Thanks to your tutorial, I’m half way done with my braided scarf! You rock :)

    Saw this scarf on Knit and Crochet Now, the tv show. Altho I love crochet I know how to knit. I just love this scarf and am making it now. I was stumped as how to make the left braid end up on the right hand side, but after seeing your explanation, I am back at work.

    thanks a lot for the video! my scarf is half way done and i couldn’t have done it without this tutorial…

    I just finished watching the videos and I am very encouraged to try this scarf. I am ordering my yarn tomorrow!

    The scarf and the video are so great. THANK You!
    I have two daughters that *were* knitting, and I’d like
    to share this with them and maybe it will encourage them
    to get knitting again–the scarf is so nice, they will want
    one in several colors. I love how simple it is to knit, but that
    it looks more complex. Your videos make it so clear, and also
    make it look so fun. I am off to our LYS that carries S & C. Yea.
    I’ll be making several of these Braided scarves as gifts (even if
    the girls don’t, lol). Love it, Love it, Love it. Thank you!!!!!

    Susan, I love your braided scarf. I’m making scarfs for the Special Olympics program so am doing this on with their Super Saver red & navy yarn. I’m using size 11 needles for the body and size 8 double point for the braid. 27 stitches in the rib and divided into 9 stitches for each I-cord. It is working out perfectly at 6″ wide. Oh, I used the red for the rib and the navy for the braids. LOVE THIS SCARF!

    That certainly great web page you could have visiting this site. The matter is very useful and also immediately to the point. Ecstatic to learn to read a little more about your site the next time.

    Hi Stacy,
    The needles I use in the videos are exactly the same needles and sizes listed in the pattern. I used a 24-inch US size 17 needles for the ribbed section or you could use straight needles for the ribbed section. I used a set of four US size 13 double-pointed needles for the I-cord section. I used these same needles for knitting up the sample for the pattern and for the video tutorials.

    Good luck.

    I amended that on the pattern page on the blog. It doesn’t matter which side you end up with the working yarn after the braid but just be aware which rib side you are on.

    I taught myself to knit so I kind of made it up as I went along. It is continental style knitting although I know I do have some quirky ways of doing things.
