Show Off Braid

Here's a braid in which I showw off some skilz.

Braid 82, in bamboo/silk

The braid for most of this is just a simple 8 strand edo yatsu, but I had 16 strands of yarn on the marudai. Half of the threads are always in the center of the hollow braid, and thus are not visible. At first, I just alternated between the red and white threads. Then, I gradually phased in the red threads one by one, then back out again. I did some more alternating, then finished up with a 16 strand braid I've been wanting to try.
