Phyllis Straus’ Braid

Heart Sasanami by Masumi Tada

Heart Sasanami

Thank you, Masumi Tada & Sumie Kiyosawa, for sharing this lovely heart braid.

I really enjoyed braiding this design on the marudai. Now, after Masumi’s discussion on tension, I realize I am a rather unbalanced braider. In that regard my braid has ‘artistic’, off-balance hearts. I will definitely try this braid again to see if I can get more balance on my tension.
