Does anyone here have any experience braiding utility rope? Online, all the braiding tutorials are aimed at foot long para-cord decorative braids.
And so far any braids I try just end up being too time consuming to do and confusing with single color strands. I would love a braid style that can be done quickly and is easy to put down and pickup again and not be confused about where you are.
Right now the only one I found that works is the typical 3 strand hair braid. But its a flat braid which I think is a negative, and I definitely would like to try one with more strands.
Something like this? This is round and uses 4 strands.

That's actually way easier than how I was taught before. I actually had about 8 inches of a started rope with that exact same braid, and that method shown is far easier to do and keep track of than the one I tried before. It is still exponentially harder to actually pull of with my fingers than 3 strand, but I feel like with enough practice it could probably be done at a decent speed.
Will give it a try.
Thanks Joylynn Hardesty.
