Candy Canes Kit - Satin Kumihimo
Kit makes 3 Satin Candy Canes
The Satin Cord Candy Cane Kit is a favorite and it’s very easy to make. The first time I made Kumihimo Candy Canes was for an ornament exchange in my book club. The ingredients are simple and the results are great. Once you’ve made a few, you can decide how you want to embellish your candy canes, i.e. add beads, little jingle bells, bows, etc. I’m giving you a start on the basics and I hope you add your own creative touches. Have fun!
The Kumihimo Candy Cane Kit contains enough materials to make 3 candy canes. The candy cane stick measures 9″ and when shaped into a candy cane the finished length is about 6 1/2″.
With this class-in-a-kit, you’ll learn how to start your braid with a Lark’s Head Knot, braid around a core (in this case a wire stem) and you’ll learn a versatile wrapping technique to finish off the tassel.
You will need: Kumihimo Disk, 8 bobbins, tape measure, scissors. You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid also known as the Kongoh Gumi
