History. The Monoyama period (1573 - 1614) is the beginning of the kumihimo of today.
It evidenced change in kimono style with the introduction of a very wide ”obi” (sash) that required a narrow cord to hold it in place. The braided ”obijime” was created for this purpose. The style is still worn in Japan today when wearing a kimono is appropriate. Toward the end of the Edo period (1616 - 1867), the takadai, or high braiding stand, developed into its current form, one allowing for more complex, intricate patterns to be created.
Edo (later named Tokyo) became the center for kumihimo. By the time of the Meiji period (1867 - 1912) samurai culture had declined and the wearing of armor was prohibited by law.

How to knit pouf. Ever since I saw a knitted Pouf (or Puff) from Pinterest, I was so inspired and wanting to knit one for my fireplace this Christmas.
I want colored cord or rope and not the natural color clothelines I used for the crochet Giant Doily Rug and knit Floor Mat. So, I begin to search around for colored cord and coincidentally Bobbiny contacted me at the same time to introduce their colorful ropes. I quickly jump in to test out their ropes and knitted this beautiful pouf. Needed me to say how I like the ropes? It is simply fantastic, especially there are 34 colors to choose from. Back to the knit pouf details, it is about 20″ in diameter and 14″ in height but the dimension is all depending on how much you stuff the pouf.
The pouf knitting pattern called for garter stitch short row construction which gives a nice curled shaped that look like ball after you have completed knitting. Galerie de Avalanche Looms.

Tutorial showing how to make rope coil vessels and bowls. These rope coil vessels are quite meditative to make.
I found the repetition of the stitches gave me a sense of stillness as I sat in the autumn sun making them. There are various methods of making rope coil bowls and baskets, and the traditional way of stitching is more uniform than I have made mine. In my tutorial the placement of the stitches is random and I love the texture and visual interest that results from this method.
