Challenge again, narrower width

 -  Hand Work
Although the weather has cooled down, the days are still hot and the temperatures continue to vary greatly, but I'm feeling better now, so I've resumed braiding.
I stopped working on the Ichimatsukoshi pattern, which is difficult because of its narrow width, but this time I wanted to stick to 6mm width tape and tried to find a different shape, but this was it! I have been looking for a different shape, but I can't seem to find it, but one shape caught my eye and I thought it would be a challenge, so I made a knitting diagram and started preparing to knit it today.

The colours used in this project are 6, the band and tape width is mainly 6 mm, with some 15 mm used for reinforcement and handles. Not all of the material in the picture (27m per roll) will be used, but we expect to need this much to finish.
All that remains is to use these to express the completed shape in the brain.

We also expect that the weaving method this time is common and that it is the handles that are likely to be difficult and distressing.
But on the contrary, I find the general knitting method more difficult, me.
I'm looking forward to seeing how it ends (and finishes) this time!
