Kumihimo Point of Braiding

Abbreviation for point of braiding.

The point where the braiding fibers are interlaced and a braid is being formed. The center of the braided structure represents the point of braiding. That is where the braid is formed and the structure becomes visible.

The point of braiding (Kensaki) provides a great deal of information to the braider: It will show whether steps in the braid sequence have been braided correctly, and whether the tension (the visible length of the thread floats) is correct.
