For this braid there are 596 2colour designs. There are subtly different versions of the pattern planner. One for each of the ways in which the braid can be made. The versions differ only in how the loops are turned when taken. Of all the planners I have done so far it is this one  the 7loop spanish braid  which has the most interesting pattern possibilities.

Use 7 bicolour loops. Use this planner to know when to turn or not turn when taking loops.

This braid is ROUND. The planner shows a projection of the braid onto a flat surface. That is to say like a snakeskin. For a preview of the finished braid you could cut around the design and roll it into tube with the matching edges overlapping.

Using all bicoloured loops there are only 10 different designs. However most are (to my eye) just random.
These 2 are interesting:

Sorry  this 12loop braid has so many permutations that the designer does not work due to limitations of maxmimum file size on the current account on this web service. If there is sufficient interest I can make an effort to work around this limitation.

Using only plain coloured loops there are only 8 possible designs: 1 3 8 22 27 75 80 182
Using all combinations of plain and bicolour loops there are 190 2colour IDs. However remember that applying the surface exchange operator (SX = flipping the starting orientation of all the bicoloured loops present) the result is something which looks very different. Excluding simple colour reversals (RV) this braid has 356 possible designs. The two sides of the braid are unequal. One is convex the other flat. The appearance of the convex side can be changed slightly by pressing/stretching or constricting the braid. The appearance of the flat side barely changes.
Hint: start with any of the these IDs and apply RV or SX or modify!

Compare this braid ID 466 with a very similar pattern on the Tollemache #18 5loop braid ID 41. They are indeed subtly different. Can you see the difference?

This requires 5loops on each hand i.e using the thumbs too. Ingrid Crickmore's videos on YouTube show how to do this. You will need 10 bicolour loops with contrasting colours. Start with all loops having the same colour on the upper shank.
A sequence of turns and transfers not presented in the book  but described on Ingrid's website. This braid is solid.
