Couert of Piole

This braid is a color variation of the "Compouner coverte of 12 bows" [t60] without the periodic twisting of all the loops.

It is a fewer-loop cousin of the flat, 8 loop "Lace piole" [t11].



Seat a partner on your right side.

Take twelve departed loops, and place them on the following fingers:
Outer hands: B C D - one color up
Inner hands: B C D - the other color up


Work with the inner hands:
A goes through B C D inner, and takes the loop on D outer unreversed.

Work with the outer hands:
A goes through B C outer, and takes the loop on D inner unreversed.
Lower the inner loops.

Exchange loops on your inner hands:
Your A goes through B from within outward, and takes your partner's B unreversed.
Partner's A takes your B unreversed.
Lower A to B.

Exchange loops on your outer hands:
Both workers reverse the A loop "downward".
Put your A loop over and behind your partner's A loop, taking his A unreversed.
Both workers reverse the A loop "upward" (undoing the twist from the previous step).
Lower the outer loops.

Repeat from the beginning.
