I love versatile patterns, and the wave braid is one of my all-time favorites. It works perfectly as an add-on to just about any design.
You can use it as layers in wall hangings, supports in plant hangings, or even keychains.
Did you know that you can ramp up the wave braid’s versatility just by changing the colors?
That’s right! By varying the color combinations in your wave braid pattern and changing the position of those colors in the design, the wave braid can look completely different.
The knotting pattern stays exactly the same, so it’s a super easy way to shake up your designs.
In this tutorial, we go over two variations of the wave braid pattern: one with three colors and one with two colors. Just wait to see how different they look!
