“横雲/Yokogumo” is one model of 49 kinds of “連鶴/Renzuru”.
Renzuru means connected-cranes which are made of only one paper without glue and tape.
49 kinds of Renzuru was in the book which is “秘伝千羽鶴折形/Hiden-Senbazuru-Orikata”.
The book was published in 1797.

Yokogumo is the model that four cranes are connected to each other side by side.
Fold cranes in the way to make a blintz-fold-crane.
Therefore, make creases neatly!
The diagram of Yokogumo

Preparation of an origami paper
a 26x26cm paper or it is bigger than 26cm.
・Basic origami paper
・Double sided origami paper
I made this model with a 26x26cm basic origami paper.
If you use a big paper, it will get easier to make this model.
In order to draw lines, prepare a pencil and a ruler as well!
Change the length of your paper to a multiple of 2
Change the length of your paper to a multiple of 2.
For example, 24,26,28,30,32.
By changing the length, it will get easier to draw lines.
Since I used a 26x26cm paper, I didn’t change the size.
If you use a rectangle paper, change the long side to a multiple of 2.
After changing the length of your paper to a multiple of 2, draw lines like this picture.
“a” is one fifth of the length.
“b” is one twentieth of the length.
(If you use a rectangle paper, the length is a length of the long side.)
If you use a 26x26cm paper,
“a” is 26÷5＝5.2cm
“b” is 26÷20＝1.3cm
Then cut the paper on the blue lines.
After cutting the paper, it looks like this picture.
Then turn the paper over.
Make creases on the lines that you have drawn.
Make a crease on the line that you have drawn like this picture.
Make creases on the other lines that you have drawn as well.
After making creases on the six lines, it looks like this picture.
Then turn the paper over.
Fold the paper in half to make a crease at the dotted line.
Fold the paper like this picture.
After spreading the paper, it looks like this picture.
Preparing an origami paper is completed!
To make creases on a paper
To make creases on a paper before cutting the paper is very important.
If you cut a paper first before making creases, it will get harder to make creases on the paper.
Also, there’s a possibility that the paper is cut halfway when making creases.
This step is making creases on each square.
When making this model,
fold cranes in the way to make an inside-blintz-crane.
The way to make an inside-blintz-crane is a little different from the way to make a basic-crane for connected-cranes.
Therefore, make creases while referencing the link down below.
In each square, make inside-blintz-crane-creases which are the green lines and the blue lines in this picture.
Make inside-blintz-crane-creases in each yellow square.
This picture is taken after making inside-blintz-crane-creases in each yellow square.
Please make sure whether there are the creases, which are the green lines and the blue lines in the 2 pictures ago, in each yellow square.
