For the takadai
In English

Designing single layer braids by combining plain weave and twill weave to produce
texture; hand movements to produce specific types of edges

The braids listed are the author's experiments with various texture combinations, first
with no repeats, then with a progression of repeated moves. She encourages the reader
to continue with similar experiments. Edges are treated separately and are omitted
from the braid list.
