In the course of developing some cables for a sweater I'm designing, I created an 8 strand cable pattern. When I googled it I couldn't find reference to it anywhere. I found out that a 5 strand braid is called a Celtic Princess braid, and a 6 strand is a Saxony (a very popular one). There are no names for the 7 and 8 strand that I can find. I'll try a 9, 10, ... later, but for now, does anyone know of names for the 7 and 8 strand braid? Here's a picture of the 8 strand done loosely and then tighter.
