This is kongo gumi, the round braid - a traditional Japanese braid, adapted to make on a foam disc.

No numbers. No adjustment moves.

Just straight forward braiding, (left up, right down) which can be addictive. You have been warned ...


Foam disc, threaded up and started
Using sixteen threads gives you many colourways 

Two pages with nineteen additional threadings is included, (shrunken from the red booklet)


Red Booklet - lots of useful chat and full-sized diagrams for the 19 braids, all the same structure, made with the same hand movements, (left up/right down), but looking quite different.

Colour through-out as of 2023.
