Black and White Checkerboard

I wound up having to expand a 16 strand braid (last seen in braid 120) from Jacqui Carey's Creative Kumihimo into a 20 strand braid so that the blocks of color would come out more square and less rectangular. Here is the braiding pattern -

Looking back, I realized I haven't posted an actual braiding pattern in about two years.
