This type of braid, which requires two strands of ribbon, consists of ribbon loops being slipped inside other loops to create a fuller, softer effect. To hold the ribbon still, pin together the ribbon on the outside of the first loop you made.
Ribbon Slip Knot Braid
Fold the ribbon in half. This braid is similar to the two-element braid, weaving the loops of the ribbon. However, the slip knot braid has two tails you pull to tighten the braid more than the two-element braid.
The barrel stitch, for braiding bracelets or lanyards, is three-dimensional, making it a perfect braid for jewellery. This stitch is a tight style of braiding with compactness and firmness. By folding and looping, you turn the barrel into separate strands, creating the braid's thickness.
You can complete this easy braid by attaching two strands to a nail to hold it in place. To complete this method you will crisscross the two strands of ribbon over and under one another in a pattern and then pull tightly to create a compact braid.
