The Braided Knit Stitch pattern is a beautiful crochet stitch that is a modification of the knit or waistcoat stitch.

It is absolutely beautiful and looks like little knit braid that travel up the fabric on the diagonal.  This stitch, like the knit or waistcoat stitch look amazing and is most commonly worked in rounds.

I have also seen this stitch called the Turkish Star stitch!

You may work it as one colour which I have done below, you you may work it in multiple.  It can be worked in a variety of yarn weights and as the design is worked in continuous rounds, you may also wish to have a stitch marker on hand.  When working the Braided knit stitch, I also recommend keeping your tension very loose! This will make it easier to insert your hook through the middle of the single crochet stitch below.  Be sure to check out the free video tutorial below.
