Miao Braids – Chinese Braid Embroidery (4)

September 30, 2016

Today, braids JC3 and 4 from Jacqui Carey’s book, Chinese Braid Embroidery.

All are 2 metres in length in pearl cotton 5, one strand per bobbin, yielding a braid 5mm wide.

Note erratum page 67: The arrangement of colours for JC3 should be the starting bobbins 1,2, 7 and 8 are one colour and bobbins 3,4,5 and 6 of another colour. The surface design resembles the takuboku woodpecker braid in Japan, as featured in samurai armour.

JC4 resembles the kata-sasanami braid in Japan.
