As many of you know I love cables. I wrote an ebook a while back about multi-strand braids (any number from 4 - ????) and put it up on my blog. It went over well and quite a few people asked me to do a project with the braids. I have just finished blocking a shrug that shows a 2, 4, 6 (Saxon Braid), 8 (Barrington Braid), and 16 strand braid. I will makethe pattern available on my blog (ittakesballstoknit.com) soon ... Here is a picture of the shrug.
