Kumihimo with 6 strings

With 6 strings you already have more choices with patterns, perfect for making bracelets. Below 3 nice patterns with 6 strings.

Pattern 1 with 6 strings

This pattern has 2 scheme's. Put the strings on the disc in the colours you want to use and follow scheme 1 and than 2. Repeat these to make this nice band. Keep the strings nice and tight while braiding, because this pattern has the tendancy to twist a bit.
For this cord we used satin cord.

Pattern 3 with 6 strings

Follow the 3 scheme's, rinse and repeat.
For pattern 3 it is important, to create an open space between de strings on the side below, so you will have space to braid the strings from above between them. To make space move the left string one spot to the left, and the right side one more spot to the right. This cord is made with flat leather cord.
Make sure the cord won't twist while braiding, for the most beautiful result.
