Under the Snow single Hishi Karakumi
This is a 16 strand braid intended to be the cord for Japanese kicho screens my husband and are I making.
I haven't picked a pattern yet but the colors will be red/black/white, to match the panels we plan to have eventually (we don't have the white yet). It is not only a very Japanese color set, but has the added benefit of being our household colors--useful as they will provide shade and privacy at Pennsic.
There will be in the end 8 braids, made on the marudai, preferably out of satin floss (to match the sheen of the faux silk).
R: Red (DMC S321)
W: White (DMC S5200)
B: Black (DMC S310)
