I have been fascinated with the lateral braid for long. Long enough to experiment with it and add something innovative to knitting projects. Here I have not only worked the braid on the RS but tested it on the WS to give a nice textured effect.

The Blanket is worked flat from bottom to top and then the border is added by picking and knitting sts along each edge.
