Braid with Corded Detail

Braids & Ropes and Cords, 26th September 2013

The problem with cords is that you can only have 2 or 3 ply, which means the number of colours is limited

This is the braid I am currently working on.  It looks a bit like a flanged cord but it is actually  woven into the plain background braid. Standard flanged cords are made by wrapping threads around a plain “core” which can give a very striped effect.  This woven cord is made in a different way enabling a different effect.
