Atlantian Medallion Cords Project
The Atlantian medallion cord project was requested by TRM Sinclair and Kari, who want braided cords for the award medallions given out during Their reign. In order to assure consistency, TRM have selected an 8-strand spiral braid using DMC floss in these colors: 725 (gold), 796 (blue), and B5200 (white). The size floss to be used is either 5 or 25.
The directions linked to below are for kumihimo. You can get the same result using the fingerloop braiding instructions for "a lace bend rounde of eight bowes" and replacing the fourth white bow with a gold one.
Here are instructions for Creating Atlantian Medallion Cords Using Kumihimo on a Disk. The instructions are also available as an MS Word document.
I have also created instructions for Creating Atlantian Medallion Cords Using Kumihimo on a Marudai (MS Word document). The photos are of the foam disk, but it gives you the general idea.
There are some step-by-step photos for creating an Atlantian Medallion Cord in my flickr account (ealdthryth) in the Atlantian Medallion Cord Project set. There are some photos of completed braids the Kumihimo set.
