Kumihimo Episode 4: 12 Warp Twisted Spiral Pattern
So I thought, I have mastered the 8 warp Kumihimo patterns, it is time to step it up to 12 warp threads. Though I did find this to be a bit more difficult as in the flow and rhythm of it, the reward is well worth it. I will be using two colors of waxed cord for this 12 warp bracelet one color will be the accent color that forms a ridge on to the twisted pattern. So come along and give this a try!
Tips and Tricks
- Bobbins maybe necessary to tame your threads due to the quantity and length.

Kumihimo Episode 4: 12 Warp Twisted
Excellent explanations of why you do what! Makes braiding look natural and easy to do if one could just find the equipment to do it with! I've wasted a lot of time looking for the cords and the end caps, they're not produced fast enough to keep up with the demand!Reviewed by: Denise from Narrows, VA. on 6/8/2014
Complexity made heavenly easy !!
This tutorial was fantastic! It made, what can be very confusing, totally comprehensible and easy to accomplish. What else this wonderful tutorial did for me, was to illuminate the fact that the "accent threads" are on the east and west parts of the kumihimo disk....this just made everything all fall together perfectly.....thank you so much for doing these great mentoring videos. :)Reviewed by: diane from Massachusetts. on 5/31/2014
