Most of us usually use metal bead caps and a bit of glue to finish up a kumihimo bracelet. But I really like Kristiina of the Typical House Cat's blog's easy peasy kumihimo tip because you can just forget the caps! This bracelet is ideal for those who are metal allergic.
Kristina's first kumihimo tutorial shows how she begins by doubling up the lengths of cord and tying a knot a little way from this end - effectively creating a loop. I love how she used pennies in a bag for a weight!
The ending is just one big over hand knot which is the "button" part. Isn't that clever? Altogether now - slap hand on forehead!
