  1. Leather size for 4 strand braid

    Use 1/8th with a 550 cord as the core. This should put you pretty darn close to 1/4 inch.
  2. Leather size for 4 strand braid

    All is dependent upon your string width. I don't know your string size that you're using now.

    Okay. Lace can be ordered at Y-Knot Lace. Order the 1/8th lace. It's all kangaroo string. Order a book by Tom Hall named Introduction to Turks Heads. It can be ordered here Introduction to Turks Heads from U-Braid it... That should get you started.

  7. Expanding a Herringbone Knot

    I trust you used the 5part 4bight TH to do this. So I will send you an enlargement process that is not of the same type of knot. But the technique is the same. Download the instructions from the link below. Yes its a good link. The pdf file is too large to upload here. Enlargement Tutorial PDF

    Core is just another piece of leather strand. You'll be braiding around that with 8 more strings. Sequence is Under 2, Over 2.
