Making cords is fun, easy and fast. In fact, a technique that looks this great shouldn't be this easy! Kumihimo (pronounced koo-mee-HEE-mo) is the ancient art of Japanese board braiding. While there are many braid structures that can be worked within the universe of board braiding, this booklet will concentrate on one easy-to-master braid. This braid can be made by children as young as 7; 'tweens are huge fans of it; teenagers tend to be "speed braiders"; and adults find it to be "Zen-like", relaxing and engaging without requiring concentration. The projects in this booklet progress from easy to more advanced. Hangable softcover, 24 pages, measures 5-1/" x 8-1/2
