Multi Strand Finger Loop Braiding
In this Instructable, I'm going to teach you how to make Finger Loop Braids. With this technique you can make braids with just your hands that have 10 or more strands each. They can be used for anything. Bracelets, chokers, belts, hat bands, as trim on clothing, or furniture... If you need a strong lacing, a finger loop braid will multiply the strength of your string/rope by 10. Finger Loop Braids were popular from the 15th to the 17th Centuries in Europe, There are still some forms of similar braids made in isolated areas of South America, Asia and the Middle East. This is the style of braiding that was done in Medieval Europe and all the patterns are translated from Medieval manuscripts by the great folks at Fingerloop.org. Supplies: some kind of rope, string, yarn,...Tools: HandsTime: Depends on the length and pattern of the braid but the ones I'm making only take a few minutes to complete an entire braid. It is difficult to describe and annotate the patterns. Lets go.
