Square String Braid

Wow, it's been a while since I did a braid. Actually, I've done a bit of braiding, but it's for a larger project that I can't talk about. Either that, or it's been a bead braid. It's been a while since I just braided to braid. I had the itch over the weekend though, so I decided to try a braid that worked out well before, but that I don't have a lot of experience braiding, the square braid.

Blue and White Square Braid

I used the 100% "string" yarn that I've used a few times before, and the square 8H braid from Jacqui Carey's Creative Kumihimo that I've used once before. I used my heaviest tama to pull this stiff yarn into line, which worked very well with this tight braid. To get the alternating stripes, it really was just a matter of making the odd and even threads the two colors I wanted.
