Kumihimo


I'm sure I'm not the first to try this but when I saw it at Walmart for $3 I figured it was worth a try. It is a Japanese form of making a bracelet I believe. I found a couple basic videos and went from there.





Typically, you use more cord-like material but I did see a video related to yarn, which was right up my alley. 


As it came through the bottom I thought it looked pretty cool. Still have to learn more of course but my mind was already thinking of how I could use this on some looming projects. 

So, have you done this? If so, share below! I'd love to see pictures!
