The Dreaded Plaited Braid Stitch

2015 has started!!!! With this thought I post the project that is on my desk at the beginning of this new year.. The Plaited Braid Stitch.. ( PBS)  This stitch has always been intimidating and for that reason,it has been kept on the back burner.  Not anymore, with Elizabethan Stitches by Jacqui Carey at my side, needle threaded, i conquered the stitch..

With the lower part of the sleeves redwork completed, it was time for the PBS.  With a deep breath I proceeded.  Following the instructions in Elizabethan Stiches, the PBS was started using DMC  Art 284, metallic thread.  The following pictures are of the completed piece so far.
