You Tube video created to demonstrate the Braided Cast On and the Twined Herringbone Border Make A Flake Demo. Profound apologies in advance for my lack of techno skills. This is just me and my iPhone mounted with a “chip clip”. On the YouTube screen, turn the volume up. Hope this helps even though my cinematographer skills are painfully lacking.

As always, holler if you have any questions!

Much thanks to bertandfelix and cairnknits for their test knitting talents!
