6-Braid Hexagon Spiral Trivet

Instructor:   Christine Manges
In this 2-session course, create a pretty 6-braid spiral trivet.  The double corners fit together to create the cornered spiral look.  A little tricky to braid and lace, but the instructor will guide you through it!

Cost:  $30 for 2 sessions 

Level:  Intermediate

Supplies: For each of the braids, you will need 90" of thin fabric.  Consider thin wool, denim, heavy cottons.  Tear strips to 1.25" wide.

Prerequisites:  Must have braided at least one rug before. 

Folds:  Left Opening Folds will be demonstrated in class.  A diagrammed handout will be available for both Left and Right Opening Braiders, but the diagrams show lacing from the front for both.
