All Posts

Below are links to all my posts in chronological order, beginning Dec 2010 when I first started this blog.
Or you can browse through them starting with the most recent ones by scrolling down the thumbnails on my homepage. At the bottom of my homepage, click on “older posts” to keep going back in time…

“Posts” are the entries/articles I’ve been adding to this WordPress blog over the last few years (listed above). They’re also displayed in thumbnail form on my home page starting under my “Welcome” post, in reverse chronological order. Some of my posts are tutorials, some are updates on what I’ve been working on, or pictures of readers’ work, or anything related to loop braiding. They pile up in date-order on my home page, with the most recent one on the top of the pile—the reverse order of the list above.

Date order may not be the most logical order for tutorials! I posted my more advanced 9 and 11-loop square braid tutorials long before my “Start here” 5-loop tutorial, just because I already had all the photos for them from an earlier how-to I had written for LMBRIC.

[Wordpress has some new blogging magic that now allows me to “stick” a couple of older posts near the top of that home-page pile, that’s why the START HERE and the Welcome to My Loop Braiding Blog posts are always up there.]

To see a listing of just the tutorials, in a more logical order, see my Tutorials index page. You can also get to this list from the tabs in my upper menu – click on Tutorials.

The tabs up in that top menu go to info pages that are quite separate from my date-ordered posts. The info pages have background information about loop braiding, or about me, or about this site and how to navigate it.

Since starting this blog, I’ve been posting on various loop braiding topics in no particular order, so I hope this page and the Tutorials page will make them easier to find.

You can search the whole blog (posts and info pages) using the search box in the sidebar as well. The sidebar also has a monthly archive drop-down and a “categories” drop-down.

I post sporadically, from 0 to a few times a month, but I tend to work on this blog all the time. On whatever upcoming post is in progress, but also on past posts…I edit them compulsively frequently, and occasionally add content. So my past posts and pages occasionally change, unlike most of the blogs I follow.

[By the way, if you are curious about blogs/ websites–say interested in starting your own–I ran on about my own reasons for choosing at the end of my kute-uchi tutorial, click link and scroll way down to the last part of the post to find it.]

  1. Are there some shops that can be suggested of who offer these kinds of braids in bracelets etc…. Thank you.

    • Hi Logan,
      I don’t sell braided jewelry myself, at least not yet. I suggest trying Etsy (i think the url is — it’s a huge site with a lot of craftpeople and artists’ shops. They probably wouldn’t have exactly the same braids I make, but there are a lot of kumihimo braiders around making gorgeous braids, I’m sure you could find some beautiful hand braided bracelets. Good luck!

    • Hi rahuldeviations!
      Here it is, asap:
      If you mean hollow braids(?) I have a tutorial for hollow double braids, it is the third tutorial in my series on double braids. You would have to learn them in order. They are not beginning level braids, learn my Start Here and Continue Here (5 and 7 loops) tutorials first.

      If you mean double-tubular braids, those can also be done with the double braid method (“double tubular” means one braided tube within another braided tube).
      But you must make two loop exchanges, not just one.
      First you exchange the normal two loops (on each little finger, for the eight-loop version).
      Then you also exchange the upper fingers’ loops (the loops on each index finger, for the eight-loop version)
      That last is a tricky move: the two index loops must be turned over (toward you) first, then exchanged, then turned back again.

      However, if you mean the double-tubular braids in my header photo, those are not double braids. They are plain weave braids that I haven’t taught yet because they are too difficult. There is no point to make a tutorial for them.

      There is more about double-tubular braids in my description of the braids in my header photo.

      I hope this helps!

  2. Hello everyone! My name is Traci Scachette and I am the owner and designer of Whiskey River Designs Custom Horse Hair Jewelry. I have exchanced an email with Ingrid and she is wonderful and her work is extraordinary. I am going to try to incorporate some of her designs into my line of work. Take a look at and let me know what you think. Loop braiding has become one of my favorite ways to braid.

    • Hi Traci, thanks! And thanks for leaving your link, your work is beautiful. I am very curious about loop braiding with horsehair, might have to ask your advice about it someday…
