Make a Six Strand Ladder Braid
Ladder braids are a decorative braid where the middle strand
fixed in position. They were used for borders around other types of
(especially hooked rugs), but more for other decorations. Ladder braids
are unique in that the center strand can be used as a 'drawstring' to
or shape the braid around corners or curves. Ladder braids can also be
made with four and eight strands.
Secure the six strands so that the strand that will remain in
position is in the number 3 slot as show (bottom, center).
