This post is titled:
I started this braid so that I could show people at a demo what a braid in progress looks like, and let them try out braiding on the marudai.
As a result, there's an error in there that changes the pattern about halfway through. I can't honestly say if they made the error or if I did, but I'll take responsibility because I didn't unbraid it to remove the error.
The braid istself is the Creative Kumihimo 8H braid I like so much, done up in bamboo/silk yarn, It's only a couple of feet long.
I chose this braid because the movements are identical to a longer braid I'm (still) working on. The braid in progress has 17 strands instead of just 8, though. The 17th strand causes the braid to be a wide, flat braid, though it mintains the twill structure.
