Plaited Braid Stitch, fini!

I did it!  I fonally conquered the plaited braid stitch!  This is the stitch which has eluded me for many years.  I found a tutorial on Youtube, (see the link below if you have struggled as I have!) and pulled out my linen and some bamboo thread to use for practice, and here is the result!

You can see, as I progressed, how much more even my stitches became.  It really wasn't even difficult, once I could actually see the steps in motion!

For anyone right brained who learns better by seeing and doing, I highly recommend watching the tutorial.
