Nested Braids embroidery pattern and coloring page

Rainbow braids

Nested braids coloring page and embroidery pattern- the outer 3 braids are 6 strand braids and the center is a 3 strand braid. Click the images for a larger version and print. If you embroider, both the embroidery version and the coloring page can be embroidered, but the embroidery version is simpler. The 4 braids can be used as frames or accents singly or all together as shown. Braids can also be considered knotwork and look very similar.

Embroidery version-
