Kumihimo - Getting Started Kumihimo is a form of Japanese braiding using various types of stringing material, often combined with beads to make exceptional jewelry. The term Kumihimo in Japanese means the gathering of threads. This technique involves using different types of looms to achieve different types of braids. The possibilities are endless and can be customized to suit everybody, so find your Kumihimo supplies and get started! When doing Kumihimo you will learn that using a different number of strands, as well as different colors, will change the overall look.

Heart Kumihimo Pattern We will need: 16 strings (13 black and 3 pink) about 20 cm longer than your wrist circumference + some for tying the bracelet.

Individual post from "Nothing In It" While I was doing my big project earlier this year to braid all of the 16-strand braids in Jacqui Carey's "Creative Kumihimo" I noticed that most of the 8-strand braids in that book were expanded or combined into 16-strand versions, except for 8C. Now 8C is really just two 4-strand (maru yotsu) braids that link together after every three iterations. It's a great braid, currently one of my favorites, and it struck me that it should be possible to expand 8C to 16 strands, but figuring out when to do which moves was the difficulty. Anyway, I eventually sat down with pencil and paper, and I worked it out. You have to be familiar with the maru yotsu 4-strand braid for this pattern to make sense at all - Direction Dragon Origami,Printable Dragon Instructions Origami Dragon Diagrams dragons in all kinds of Easy Dragon ~ Dragon Make Origami folds - Level: Easy Cartoon Dragons Origami ~diagram dragon cartoon origami version - Level: dragon easy origami Candy Wrapper Origami Dragon ~ origami funky direction dragon from candywrapper - Level: medium Advanced Daragon Dragon ~ dragon instruction origami - this one has 70 steps of dragon fold origami, not for beginners but a good challenge for origami dragon fans
