As knitters and crocheters, we all have leftover bits of yarn in our stashes. Kumihimo, a Japanese form of braiding, can be a perfect way to use up some of those leftovers. In this class, we'll make a bracelet as we learn the kongoh gumi, an 8-strand round braid. We'll also explore ways to incorporate these round braids into our knit and crochet projects. A kumihimo bracelet kit is available for purchase at A Little Knitty for $15-- it contains disc, bobbins, yarn and magnetic clasp….all the supplies needed to make the kumihimo bracelet class project.
