Synopses & Reviews
This is the second Kumihimo book by Rebecca Combs. This book will focus more on the beginner and shares some of the most popular features that made the first book a runaway success: conversational voice, skill-building format, Kumihimo math, and continuing to use the inexpensive Kumihimo foam disk. Kumihimo Simplified includes 5 new” braids: 8-warp basket weave, 16-warp rectangular, 16-warp hollow basket, 8-warp half-round, and 8-warp square. Beads will be included within the braids where appropriate, however, the focus will be straight braid. Special sidebars will include Creative Closures - 5 different ways to finish Kumihimo braids, besides the common gluing of endcaps.
