Exchanging loops between hands was a new move, and as it turns out a relatively easy one for me to conquer. From long years of piano-playing and all-finger typing, I am comfortable using all fingers, which no doubt helps. Avoiding dropping loops, especially as I neared the end, and loop length began to vary slightly, was the trickiest part. Do not despair if you struggle with this part! Curl tighter the fingers not actively involved in each exchange, and use your thumbs to manage the exchanging threads.
When I started the braid, I did not tension after each exchange, which was a mistake. You can see the looseness — even more than usual with a fingerloop start — at the beginning of my work.
I was unsure initially which way to draw the loops through when exchanging. The instructions for the move (given earlier on the page) suggest that you pull the left loop over the right loop. However, the text of this instruction clearly says to draw the left loop through the right loop. So that’s what I did.
