**Kumihimo "Ribbon & Satin" Corkscrew Bracelet (click for all 5 colors)
Springy, bouncy and lots of fun, this is the same as Karen’s Kumihimo Corkscrew Bracelet but made with Petite Satin Cord and Kumihimo Rayon Ribbon. This combination is fantastic. The Petite Satin serves to carry a solid color along the length of the braid while the color repeats in the KRR add some awesome focal interest. The patterns gives guidelines for utilizing the color repeats in the KRR, how to start with an “interlaced” end and braid around a core. This bracelet is approximately 4 “wraps”. There is flexibility with the sizing as the bracelet is stretchy in nature. This kit starts you out with a basic spiral pattern but you can change the patterns and try your own colors once you learn the techniques for making the bracelet.
You will Need: 6″ Kumihimo Disk (use a 6″ disk rather than a mini), 8 Bobbins, Measuring Tape, Needle & Heavy Duty Thread, Glue (I like WeldBond) and Scissors.
