Braid Worksheets

Update: 2013-11-15:

These complimentary PDFs may be useful in planning your 8 or 16 element Kongo Gumi (Round Spiral), one of the most basic Kumihimo Braids as well as its intended use, to record "what was done"
PDF pages open in a new window/tab and require Adobe Reader
Wheat made these for her personal use, the sheet assumes you have reference material for the movements. If not, BeadSmith has graciously made the instruction sheet written by Ann Dilker, usually enclosed when you purchase the BeadSmith Kumhimo Disk This is not the leaflet Ann wrote which is sold separately, it is what is usually enclosed when you purchase the BeadSmith Kumhimo Disk

These are shared (although in some need of revision) with the hope you will respect the work involved in working out the details and will be kind enough to refer those who may find it useful to the resources offered at ItsAllJustString.

This sheet is what I most often use since deciding to focus on 16 element/tama braids. Feel free to adapt it for your own specific needs. Please feel free to share the link to our PDF as a starting point but please do not share the PDF directly. Thank you for your courtesy.
