this post to show more clearly the Anna Burda instructions for the leaf bread. In case the photo isn't clear enough, I'll rewrite the instructions for braid 6: This braid consists of r. of 4-4-8 ds. Draw r. tog. and reverse work. Commence 2nd and each foll. r. after a thread length of half the size of the r. (= 4 ds.), after 4th ds. join to base of antecedent r., end r. with 4-8 ds.
This article was in the May 1984 Anna Burda magazine.
I used split rings to tat the braid in a more 'modern' fashion, as you can see here.
