Loop braiding is a way to make beautiful cords and bands, using only your hands and some yarn or string. It tends to be much faster than knotting or fingerweaving. It has a long, worldwide history, going back thousands of years, some of which has been preserved in manuscripts from medieval and later periods, in both England and Japan.
Loop braiding is fun, easy to learn, and is a great addition to any craftperson’s bag of tricks. Check out my list of tutorials (tab at top of screen) and come back for more, I add to the list frequently. Please comment under any of the posts! I’d love to hear about your textile/ crafts interests, talk braids, or just say hi.
You can read more about about loop braiding, and about me, under my “about” tabs in the top menu. The other tabs lead to my home page, tutorials, color-pattern instructions, and loop braiding history. My sidebar has more information, including a list of links to other braiding websites, and a list of links to various other textile sites. If you’re curious about the braids in my header photo, there is info about each of them in the comment field below.
Thanks for visiting Loop Braiding!
