Nejire Edo-yatsu Braid

– with Bob Galivan

This clever variation on the traditional Edo-yatsu kumihimo braid introduces a “twist” in the structure by adding a separate contrasting element on one axis. The turning sections of the braid can be of any length, and can be varied in length to create an even more dimensional look to the braid. The fiber in the example is rayon (imposter silk) but the same effect can be achieved using thin satin or waxed cotton cord. Students will learn the kumhimo Edo-yatsu braid on the round disc; how to alter the orientation of the braid with a separate element offset on one side; how to incorporate a core into the braid to control the beginning and end of the structure.
