Wrist Loops…

Wrist Loops…

Lately I’ve been putting more thought into my wrist loops and because of that they are looking much better.  I think there are a couple of things that are overlooked by beginners when they make wrist loops:

  1. Thickness of the strands:  On a 6 plait wrist loop that’s normally used on an Indy Bullwhip you need the strands to be fairly thin.
  2. Length of the wristloop:  I’ve notice that a lot of beginners wristloops aren’t very big.  That would make it hard for someone with a thick hand to use it.

Until recently I’ve been cutting my wristloops freehand, but since making my strands thinner I switched over to using one of David Morgan’s lace cutters.

You can get them from David Morgan, they work great for cutting the fine strand of a wrist loop.
