It is perhaps inevitable that mistakes creep in to beading books as there are so many diagrams to check and double check. One error (see below) in a diagram flagged up when my Knotting and Braiding Bible was translated into French recently but over the Festive season I got a lovely message from a lady in the US telling me that she had found errors on two diagrams in the spin-off: The Beginner’s Guide to Kumihimo is available as an e-book and a physical copy.
I tried out the two patterns for 16 strand kumihimo last night and thought she was right initially but I felt that I wasn’t concentrating (watching TV at the time!) so I started again and was relieved to find that the diagrams are both correct!
This is the error on page 34 (p118 in the original paperback) – the instructions are correct but diagram 3 should look as the dark lines shown.
