Level: Intermediate – Previous experience with the basic round braid (Kumihimo 101) required.
Technique Learned: 8-Warp Half-Round Braid
Length of Class: 2 Hours
What Will I Actually Make in Class? The Half-Round braid is done on the same round disk as the basic braid you learned in Kumihimo 101. The difference is the move sequence. These new moves result in a braid that is domed (half-round) on top and flat on the back. Most students braid 6″-8″ in class – enough for a bracelet or a fair start on a necklace.
How often is this class offered? Expect to see this class on the schedule every other month.
