I have been teaching braiding for 30 years and "After the Hooking Comes Braiding" for about 9 years.

For a three day class, I ask students to come to class with the following items hooked and blocked-if needed:

1.  A five inch circle

2. A five inch square

3. A five inch heart

4.  A six inch wheel

They learn to braid around hooking in the four shapes listed above plus make a 9 Loop Braided Center and the Picot decorative edge.  

Everything is pictured in the photos below.

They will learn to prepare the wool for braiding, straight braid, make braided double corners (heart), braided triple corners (square), make a 9 Loop Braided Center to be inserted into the center of the hooked wheel, and make a decorative Picot Edge braided border to be laced onto the straight braid around the circle.  Butting is the process of joining the six raw edges of the braid, and I have a fairly easy method for this (not my invention but students feel it is quite easy compared to most methods).

I don't sell wool and like students to bring their own so that it matches or is complimentary between the braid and hooking.

With the above skills, students will be able to braid around any size hooked piece and go back and forth between hooking and braiding.
