Sleeve Braid 1

I finally decided that the plain black braid from the fabric store that I used in the fancy red kariginu was just not cutting it, so I started work on some nicer braids.

Red Sleeve Braid #1

I did the 9-strand shige uchi braid with 8 plies of silk thread per strand, in a color pattern that is common for sageo cords. This braid is about ten feet long, which should be more than sufficient. Now I just need to make another one.
