Title: Fistbraiding: Tutorial series
Post by Teg on Jun 25th, 2023 at 5:30am
Hello together,

I started a tutorial series covering the basics of fistbraiding. See here for the first three videos covering the basics.

If I find time I will add more and more videos going into further details.
In the meantime feel free to ask questions, show your braids, or say what you would like to see next.

Enjoy!

Great tutorials, Teg! The process was explained very well and it was easy to follow :)

I found your videos quite helpful and am glad to say that they have brought me one step closer to making a Peruvian or Tibetan sling some day! Thank you :)

Magnificent!  :)

I've always been kind of intimidated by fist braiding and never tried it.  But you certainly make it look easy.  I'll have to give this a shot.

A couple ideas if you continue the series:
[list bull-blackball]
  • Show how to split the braid and create the pouch.
  • Show how to include core strands and incorporate them into the braid to make patterns.

    Very cool. I'm getting back into making wool slings now so I will have to give some of this stuff a go. I've actually yet to complete a fully fist braided sling, the furthest I got was about 60% but it was so slow I gave up  :D
