About the braid

This is a marudai version of the kikko braid usually made on a takadai. Instructions can be found on the Yahoo group, kumi2, (you need to be a member of the group to access files) and on the Facebook group, Kumihimo Braiders International (you need to be signed in to Facebook):

Making notes:

  • Tighten braid at moves 1 and 5 by pulling crossed threads before laying down. It is important to do this consistently else the braidd will be uneven.
  • I prefer to have a slight separation between the northern and southern groups, as shown in the thread layout diagram
  • Michael Hattori has suggested splitting the groups of 4 into groups of 2 to help ensure correct placement, but I have not found this necessary


(Point of braid is at the bottom of the diagram).

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.
