Kumihimo Video

Turn down your computer's volume before playing this video.

Just some video of one cycle (four iterations) of the "Edo Yatsu" kumihimo patern. It may look like two cycles, but if I were using four colors you'd be able to see clearly that half way through, the thread positions are reversed from start. Starting with the threads in this position creates a very nice spiral pattern in the resulting braid.

I apologize for the stereotypical "Oriental" music, but the music I had playing on the stereo while I shot this video was unsuitable, and I decided to experiment with YouTube's background music feature.
