A Lace Bordered the One Side

This braid combines concepts that are present in other braids, but not exactly in this form. Related braids include the "Lace common round" [t3] and "An hollow lace" [t18].

If your partner takes both of his loops reversed, you'll have "A thin lace bordered" [t8].



Seat a partner on your right side.

You: Take five loops of one color, and place them on the following fingers:
Outer hand: A B C
Inner hand: B C

Partner: Take three loops of a second color, and place them on the following fingers:
Outer hand: B
Inner hand: B C


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

You: Work with the outer hand:
A goes through B C outer, and takes the loop on C inner reversed.
Lower the inner loops.

Partner: Work with the outer hand:
A goes through B outer, and takes the loop on C inner reversed.
Lower the outer loops.

Partner: Work with the inner hand:
A goes through B inner, and takes the loop on C outer reversed.
Lower the inner loops.

Exchange loops on your inner hands twice so you each have your own color back again:
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.

Repeat from the beginning.
