Shanna brought this pattern to my attention; I think few of us have caught the Kumihimo bug; so of course I had to give it a go! It has such a retro look to it, yet is very now too, the chevron design is appearing on everything lately! This time we are going to be using the square disc, though this can be done on the round disc as well. The challenge here was really setting up the pattern, once I started the project it all fell in to place. Enjoy this pattern as I am sure you will have a harder time deciding on your next color combination!
Tips and Tricks
We will be using 5 colors of rattail cord.
Terminators or Ribbon Crimp Ends are used to finish flat braids.
Good video and clear. Suggestions - tie the end knot before starting the video - don't show any part that can be frustrating. Second - get the poor lady a decent pair of scissors. I like the video and am anxious to try the pattern.

Q:I have watched this video on Youtube and purchased several color variations of rattail and the other needed items required to make the flat chevron bracelet from you but when I was ready to try making it I was a little confused by the instructions. Karla states in the video that she used (2) 20" strands of (5) colors but are there actually (4) 20" strands of (5) colors? Pls advise. I can't wait to make this bracelet!
A: Yes Pam there is actually 4 pieces of each of the 5 colors! Sorry for the confusion...it must have been the math! LOL! Karla
