Structure and method
The fell is #3 as shown on page 9. That fell #3 is used is also stated and illustrated on pages 23 and 24.
The chart produced by this application can be used by two braiders following the simpler braiding procedure as described on page 56.
The same chart can also be used by a single braider and the procedure described in Ingrid Crickmore's article. The article includes links to Ingrid's YouTube videos on this braid.
Starting ideas
There are illustrations of historical letters for this braid on page 24.
The corresponding Braiding charts for historical letters and motifs are described in Appendix B on page 57 to 59.
There are more illustrations of historical letters on page 13. The book does not have charts in this style for page 13 letters using this fell and procedure - but from the illustrations on page 13 you can compose the charts using this application.

Instruction reminder:

Each cycle has 8 operations with all unreversed (U).

This is the orange chart:

* loops are turned to have upper shank colours as indicated on chart before starting a braid cycle

(If you want to take the loops according to colour then you may find it more convenient to SWITCH to 10-loop Yellow Chart )

(If you want to braid the loops according to verbal instructions then you may find it more convenient to SWITCH to 10-loop Bindloss Chart )

SWITCH to 10-loop Fell 2 Chart )

SWITCH to 10-loop Fell 6 Chart )

SWITCH to 10-loop Fell 7 Chart )
