Braid to Bracelet
tutorial, she starts the braid by encapsulating five threads with the sixth and then tying a knot to make a loop. I thought of starting the same way, adding a bead at the end. Then I had a brainwave that it would be easier to start with the bead and hide the ends by encapsulating them. I was looking for the right bead when I came across my button box. Ah, a button might work better than a bead. So, I wound three shuttles, passed the threads through the button, then wound another three shuttles on the other side, tied an overhand knot and began to braid. At the end, I encapsulated five threads with the sixth to make a loop for the button to go through.
