Kumihimo = Japanese Braiding
This Japanese Braiding technique is easy, fast and fun. You can do necklaces, bracelets
straps for a purse or tote bag, shoestrings and much more. You are only limited
by your imagination. Make them thin with a single strand or make them heavy with
multiple strands. Any type of yarn or string will work. You can also add beads
to the yarn. Push one bead up and into the braid with each stitch or every few stitches.
Or add the beads as embellishment after the braid is completed.
