Green and Gold 4 Hishi belt
This is a Karakumi (early period version of Kumihimo, or complex Japanese braids) 4 hishi (diamond) belt done in 2 shades of green and gold, 96 bobbins. The colors are based to compliment the greens/golds of the Autumn maple color scheme, though it lacks the red that dominates that color scheme (so it picks up the accent colors, not the main one).
It will be 8 feet, plus tassels, when finished, and is 2 inches wide. It is made from the Satin DMC.
