This is a huge and heavy plait pattern made by a highly unusual method. Each of the plaited ribs is a series of short rows, and each one stands up a full quarter-inch, or more, from the background. If several of these giant plaits are being worked at once, then a separate cable needle will be required for each, because the stitches are left on the cable needle throughout an entire right-side row. and are not picked up again until the return row. (If you want to use a number of Giant Embossed Plaits but do not have a sufficient number of cable needles, round toothpicks will do nicely instead.)
