Braided Ribbing Stitch is a beautiful cable stitch that you work right on the needles, without the fussiness of a cable stitch holder. This stitch creates hearty ribs, alternating delicately entwined cables with a couple of reverse stockinette stitches, surprisingly intricate looking but not at all complicated! We show you all the techniques involved here, and for specific instructions on how to bind off the Braided Ribbing Stitch, just skip ahead to 2:53 minutes.
