Hi Giovanna. Thank you for creating this interesting project. I have never used a takadai before so this is my first venture into takadai braids. I am having difficulty keeping track of which tama is which and have created a mess twice and had to redo the set up. I thin my ‘manual dexterity’ is lacking! So…..for better or worse I decided to innovate. I made what I believe is called a sword and use it to create a space to slide the bobbin through I have tightened the best I can. Before I continue on please let me know if the set up/point of braiding looks correct. Thank you!
(I think I may have had an easier time on the baby takadai!)
