Three Rectangular Braids

Sharon and I taught another kumihimo class, this time at Aethelmearc War Practice. I only taught two braids, kaku yatsu and hira kara gumi. Over the course of that weekend, I actually wound up making three braids of kaku yatsu to use up the material I had prepared for class. All three of these are in cotton crochet thread, either three or four threads per strand.


"Rings" color pattern

The first one, I wound up gifting to Sir Ogami Akira to use as a chin strap for his hat. He says it's very comfy.


"S Braid" pattern

THL Cadel Blaidd Dhu tried this color pattern, and I liked it so much that I just had to try it.


"Wu Tang" pattern

I was trying to see if I could get a spiral in this braid, but instead I wound up with this great swoopy figure.
