About the braid

Hollow braids are probably the most commonly used braid in the world. They appear everywhere, from ropes to shoelaces! The pictures here show the braid both flattened and round, it will tend to flatten unless it contains some core to hold a round shape. Each view of the braid is rotated by a quarter turn so you can see how it will look from different sides, or flattened in different ways. If you come up with any great uses for this braid, even some fabulous shoe laces, send us a picture.

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.
