Below is a list of links to all my posts in chronological order, beginning Dec 2010 when I first started this blog.
Another way to access them is to browse down the homepage for a thumbnail photo and brief excerpt from each post in reverse chronological order. At the bottom of the homepage, click on “older posts” to keep going back in time. (The five thumbnails at the top of the homepage have been plucked out of chronological order – the highest one is the most recent post, and the four lined up below that are ‘go-to’ intro posts.)
For a list of links to just the tutorials, click on the Tutorials tab in the upper menu.
Some of other tabs in the upper menu call up posts by topic, say all the posts on color pattern variations for braids in the tutorials, or all the posts that reference loop braiding history etc. The About menu tab accesses a slew of info pages. Information pages are a separate category from “blog posts” – they can only be accessed from the About tab, they don’t show up in the list of blog posts below, or on the homepage. (They include my contact info, technical and historical information, books, a terminology page, a guide to another useful website called L-MBRIC, and more).
Links to other braiding or textile sites are in my sidebar.
Use the search box in the sidebar to search this whole site – posts and info pages. (It works great – I use it pretty often myself!)

I sort of think of this site as both a blog and also my in-progress ‘book’ on loop braiding. I post sporadically, from 0 to a couple times a month, but I edit and add to past posts
compulsively frequently. As a result, some of my past posts and information pages have gradually changed, unlike most of the blogs I follow. (I never delete posts, though, so even brief notice-type posts stay there in the list).
To receive an automated email alert when I publish a new post, sign up at the top of my sidebar. No other emails are sent, and it’s easy to unsubscribe – you can do it directly from one of the automated emails, or from the top of my sidebar.
In case you are interested in starting your own blog or website, I ran on about why I chose wordpress.com at the end of my kute-uchi tutorial.

Are there some shops that can be suggested of who offer these kinds of braids in bracelets etc…. Thank you.
I don’t sell braided jewelry myself, at least not yet. I suggest trying Etsy (i think the url is etsy.com?) — 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 your works are really awesome but i also want to know about the tubular braidings asap thank you 🙂
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!
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 http://www.whiskeyriverdesigns.com 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…
