Kumihimo Designer

I received this link from a  forum friend and thought I'd share it with the you. It's a web site where you can experiment with color placement to make designs with the kongoh braid.

It's called "Frienship Bracelet Designer" It's easy to use - just pick a color and click where it goes. The "braid" shows the results. You can set it up for 8 to 32 elements (in increments of 4) by clicking the "+" or "-" in the middle of the setup diagram.  You can then click on the image further down and it shows you the movements of the elements. This is for a round braid structure only.

You'll need Java installed on your computer to use it (free download from java.com if you don't already have it).

Thanks Anita for sharing.

This looks like fun, something the kids would enjoy playing around with.
