Kumihimo - tutorial; flat braid with hearts
I thought I´d post a tutorial of a kumihimo pattern; flat 12-tread braid with heart pattern: For about 2 bracelets (finished length 30+ cm), I used 6 x 1,20 m lengths; 5 x 1 mm cords in dark blue satin and 1 x 2mm cord in pink satin. The thicker cord might be a bit shorter if you want. Lay the threads double and place the 12 threads in the starting position as shown under. (I will refer to the disc as a clock: 12 o´clock is on top, 3 o´clock is to the right, 6 o´clock is bottom ans 9 o´clock is left.) This is the starting position of the threads. First take the inner right thread in the 12 o´clock position and move it down below the two threads on the left side, in the 9 o´clock position. Take the inner left thread in the 12 o´clock position and move it down below the two threads on the right side, in the 3 o´clock position. Move the two top threads closer, replacing the moved threads. Do the same move with the inner right thread in the 6 o´clock position to the left side. A while later.....
