12 Strand Rounded Flat Horse Hair Braid

12 Strand Rounded Flat Braid

In my last blog post we looked at an 8 strand braid. I had an idea to adapt this pattern to see how this would affect the design. The result was a more chunky design that can easily be adapted to create various colour patterns.

The result is a 12 strand rounded flat bracelet. This design has a sterling silver hoof print attached to enhance the bracelet.

This braid pattern will be posted later this week. Flat braids are quicker to make than the spiral designs. The work is not rotated and it is easier to maintain tension in the horse hair. I really like this particular pattern. 

It is worth stepping outside of your comfort zone once in a while to try different patterns. You never know what you might come up with!
