$ 16.50


These Kumihimo Designer” Candy Canes are made up of a combination of a wider Novelty Ribbon combined with petite Satin Cord. The Ribbon adds richness and texture date Petite Satin adds the spark that gives the Candy Cane “pop”. The Satin Cords tails are embellished with 6/0 seed beads/ You will learn how to braid around a core (wire stem) and you’ll also learn a great technique for wrapping the end of a braid. There are three different Kongoh-gumi patterns. The Candy Cane “stick” is 9″long and the Candy Cane stands about 6 1/2″ tall with the bend. You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I recommend using a disk that has been used a bit with slots that are more flexible to fit the ribbon), 8 bobbins, tape measure, scissors.  You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid also known as the Kongoh Gumi.
