About the braid

This braid is one of 4 I made trying different ways of using 10 threads to make a variant of “Flat 8”. The front (left picture) of the braid can either be left fairly wide, or pulled tighter so the horizontal threads hardly show. The wider version has a semicircular cross section, the narrower one is more like a trapezoid. I have found that unless the finished braid is treated with reasonable care, it tends to become narrower.

How to use the designer

Use the colour picker to choose your thread colour. If you use it on the braid, it will be added to your colour list so you can easily choose it again. Click on the thread you want to colour in the braid diagram.

Some braids allow you to change the number of threads. If available, you can use the "+" and "-" buttons to change the number of threads - active internet connection required.

  • This braid was derived by ourselves.
