Kumihimo Episode 5: Basic Flat Kumihimo
I am very excited about Kumihimo, so I thought it was time to try the flat kumihimo using the Kumihimo Square Plate! After reading the instructions, I was a bit confused as it is very different from the round plate. I worked it out and found this to be really easy after all! I produces such a different look that I can't wait to explore other patterns! I like to start with the basics first to get the feel of how the plate works, but I assure you this will too become a favorite!
Tips and Tricks
- The square plate produces a flat braid.
- Terminators or Ribbon Crimp Ends are used to finish flat braids.
