Ply-Split Braid on a Keyring: Chevron Design

Learn the techniques of ply-split braiding by making this braid on a keyring. To order a kit for this braid with cords and instructions with step-by-step photos, please see details on my Kits for Ply-Split Braids and Ornaments page.

This Ply-Split Chevron Braid is a traditional ply-split design used in the camel girths from India's Thar Desert. There are several photos of this design in The Techniques of Ply-Split Braiding by Peter Collingwood. The structure is SCOT (single-course oblique twining). The braid shown here is worked in two sections on a V-fell for the body of the braid.
