The Braided Twist tool is backed with a book full of twists and turns. Each runner is made with the same basic technique but there's more! Learn the Basics, then add details. The 45 twist is where the creativity starts. You'll want a Squedge 45 (or any other 45 degree tool works!) Once you have the basics down take it further... Try twisting a basic and 45 together, or make it reversible, or make it longer or shorter. All the yardage is figured out for you in the book!
