It is good to practice a technique like 8 strand kumihimo bracelet repeatedly. Practice does make perfect as the ability to keep an even tension improves. But there is another benefit. After a while, greater understanding of how the braiding happens develops and that gives confidence to try something new.
That's what happened to Allison Murray of Dream a Little Bigger. She became accomplished in the 8 strand style and moved on to a 12 strand kumihimo bracelet. I love how she chose the color pattern such that a distinct spiral is displayed.
