Kumihimo is a Japanese braiding technique that creates beautiful cords made by interlacing strands of ribbon or yarn. You can make super cool friendship bracelets using this technique. It was really fun and relatively easy to do. You can get very addictive too.
To get started, you need a Kumihimo disk; I paid about $15 for mine. You can use yarn, silk ribbons or silk embroidery floss available in stores like Michael’s or Joann’s. The possibilities are endless!
