Jul 16th, 2009 at 9:41am
 
Hello
I am new here.
I want to learn how to braid, like you can see on the 8. and 9. picture here:
http://slinging.org/index.php?mact=Album,m5,default,1&m5albumid=11&m5returnid=53...
I mean the braiding near the poach.I have been searching for hours for introductions for this, but i didnt find anything.
Can you help me?
Greetings from Germany
Axel

Nothing here that I'm aware of.

Perhaps these books.

Braids: 250 Patterns from Japan, Peru & Beyond
By Rodrick Owen

Sling Braiding of the Andes
by Adele Cahlander

They are the most likely sources for this style of braid.

There is this, which is close but not quite the same. Its probably worth a look though.

I recommend that you send a personal message to _kava_ about this. His slings are similar.

oh, he has an underscore before his name so he appears in the 'other' section. http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?action=ml;sort=mlletter;letter=other

cool, I had no idea I was in the 'other' section.  Grin

@Axelk - dude, sent you a pm.

For everbody else: basic braids with different colours will pretty much get you on the right track - just gotta play around with it.
And the pouch is simply made the same way as friendship bracelets - I don't know how he did those particular patterns though.

hope this shines a little light on the subject.

cheers,

_K_

i have tried this technique and it has proved rather very difficult i can make friendship bracelets but putting them into sling form is very hard

i have a whole new respect for whipartist
