I’m working on a 12 plait two tone bullwhip right now. I wanted it to have a two tone handle that I could do some patterns with, but I wanted the lash to be less formal looking of having the two colors separated.
What I did was start with the colored strands alternating and plaited the patterns on the handle, then I took two sets of two strands and switched their places. Here are a couple of pics of the switched lace:
I’m going to put a knot over the gap on the handle that was created by the swaping of the lace. I have a feeling I’m going to be using this technique more in the future!
