Hi guys, I've spent maybe 3 hours trying to achieve a braid pattern but I've had zero luck! This is my reference IMAGE and I've looked at whatever tutorial I can find (and there's not many...) - wicker, rope, fabric, chains, and I just can't get a result anywhere close to this. I want a wicker trim material but I just can't seem to grasp how to approach this, at all. I've tried intersecting makeshift sine waves, I've tried trying to have a harsher blend on a rope pattern but it all ends up looking very out of place.
Does anyone have any graph examples of how something like this was approached? I've searched up and down and no luck
