Super shiny waxed cord

Waxed cord kumihimo bracelet

I picked up some of this super shiny waxed cord at the Knitting Show on Thursday. Regular waxed cord is great to use with kumihimo. It works up into a tight, regular braid with a casual, natural texture. ┬áThis new cord works up just as well, but has a lovely glossy surface, which gives a more ‘finished’ effect and is smoother on the skin. The added bonus is that it comes in clean, bright colours. To make the most of this I made three braids in bold colours and brought them together into a wide, oval end cap. The finishing touch was a chunky clasp. It is a lovely bracelet to wear and got lots of positive comments when it was posted on the Facebook Kumihimo group. Details of how to make this Triple Braid Bracelet can be found on the Free Mini Tutorials page.
