Any RPFers know about leather weaving or braiding?

    I guess this is in the right forum, since it concerns a prop work-in-progress.

    I've done some leather-work before, but certain patterns I just can't wrap my brain around (without some insight).

    I'm re-doing a sword hilt & I'd like to use this pattern (referring to the narrow strips):

    Does anyone here have the know-how or deductive capabilities to break this down for me (i.e. how many strips used, which strips go over which)? I guess I need it to be explained in a stupidly simple manner...

    Thanks in advance.

    Bump for the after-work-late-afternoon-early-to-late-evening members who don't browse past page 1.



    All my thread are belong to me.

    I'd love to see the back of that. Except for the horizontal parts, I'm pretty sure it could be done with two strips. As shown, no clue.

    I too would have to see a 360 view of it. Its quite possibly 2 strips. It depends.
