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! Or send me an email–click the Contact tab up top. I’d love to hear about your textile/ crafts interests, answer questions, talk braids, or just say hi.
“Follow” this blog: Click to follow at the top of the sidebar (if you’re on a small-screen device, my ‘sidebar’ may be somewhere other than at the side)—this just means you’ll get an automated email alert when I make a new post, no other emails. I usually post once or twice a month, but this can vary.
You can read more about about loop braiding, and about me, under my “about” tabs in the top menu. Other tabs lead to my home page, tutorials index, and an index to all my past posts. My sidebar has more links—to this site and to related 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!
