In-depth detailed instructions are given, along with clear diagrams; recommended braiding yarns for slingsand kumihimo; detailed set-up, making, and finishing instructions;and many fascinating contemporary applications. This book introduces a new piece of equipment, the core frame, and gives instructions for making it from wood and dowels. When the core frame is used with a braiding stand and bobbins, a wide variety of core-carrying braids become accessible to kumihimo braiders. Most of the braids, from 4 to 40 strands, can be made on a braiding card and 50 patterns can be made on the stand without a frame.
