Bullwhip Handle Design…

Bullwhip Handle Design…

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!
