Teardrop Braid

The basic teardrop braid is beautiful.

Any number of strands may be used while creating it.

Blue TeardropSuch an elegant braid. Yes, it is a little more complicated in its creation but once you understand the tricks in making it you will be pleased with this form.

teardropsWhen the top portion of the form is completed you may finish the form with any number of strands. In this example I used 3-strands on top in the dutch pattern. I used a 2-strand french herringbone to finish the bottom portion of the form. The more you practice the better it will look. I hope to see photos of your teardrops in our facebook group.
