Wide Heavy Braid

After the difficulties I had with that other yarn, I decided to do another braid with the Maju Silk yarn I enjoyed so much in the past. It was a good excuse to try a new braid, so I pulled out my Creative Kumihimo and picked this 16 strand flat braid.

Wide Heavy SilkBraid

This braid is about four feet long and about an inch wide. It uses CK16X, which makes this nice, wide, heavy, stretchy braid. It's a fast braid, and I'm sure I'll use it again. I didn't have any problem with single strands of this yarn fraying apart, so I'm fairly certain the other yarn just uses cheaper short fibers.
