About the braid

Because the groups of 2 and 3 are separated, the stitches on the braid are gathered together into shorter and longer stitch areas. A collection of short stitches like this is good for pattern design and you get a 5×5 square to work with. The pattern is repeated in the longer stitches, but is a bit distorted by the stitch length and separation. With short stitches on one side and long on the other, this braid forms a long loose spiral shape as it develops. The spiral worked out tighter on my disk version compared to the marudai, most likely due to increased tension.

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.
