About the braid

This flat braid can produce a strong 2 colour chevron pattern on one side. It can also be used to develop other patterns too. Try changing the thread colours to see what you can do!

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.
