This is the second braid I have attempted from Makiko Tada's book the Comprehensive Treatise of Braids III - Takadai Braids 1. I have used the mercerised cotton (un-stranded) I bought in the US this year
Mixed results from this attempt. The black has formed into 'ripples' yet the purples/cream aren't quite doing the same yet they are the same thread. You shouldn't see them showing under the 1:1 braiding either. I'll try this again with some warped threads and experiment with the tama weights to see if I can get it t look like the picture in the book. Back to the takadia.
