12 Strand Basic Kumihimo Braid

This Basic Kumihimo Braid is really simple and easy to make.  The pattern or movements stays the same whether you are using 8 strands, 12 strands or 16+ strands in your designs.    

To make a 7 -8 inch braid, each strand in your design should measure about 36 inches or 1 yard.  The below video is for a 8 strand Basic Kumihimo Braid, but the movements are exactly the same for a 12 strand Basic Kumihimo Braid
