Kumihimo Braid Color Planning Tool

Kumihimo still looms in the back of my mind (no pun intended), but I haven't been actively learning it or practicing braiding lately.  However, that doesn't mean that I don't continue to collect bits of information that will be useful when I do pick it up again.

Today is one of those days.  I happened upon this super cool Kumihimo Braid Color Planner for 8 strand round braids.  It will help you plan what color cords to use in which positions to get your desired results.  Wow!!  I love this!!

Click on the image above to go to the tool or visit Lytha Studios for this tool and several other cool tutorials and supplies.  If you are interested in kumihimo, then you may also like this tutorial for using end caps to finish kumihimo braids.

Happy braiding!
