Let me show you how to create the beautiful 7-strand braid you have been wanting to make!
It takes a little practice but is much easier than you might think. A full video is on the link below.
I find it easiest to label 1-7. Take strand 7, far-right, and cross it over 6.
Take the 2 strips to the left of this and cross those over the one to their right. 188.8.131.52.4.5.6.
Take the strand furthest to the right (#1), and braid it over (#2). 184.108.40.206.4.5.6.
Take strands 3&4 and cross them over 1. 220.127.116.11.4.5.6.
Start the process over again on the right-hand side.
It will take some time getting used to, but you will get it!
Once you finish, pinch both ends and tuck them under.
While braiding a 7-strand braid isn't the easiest braid, it really is one of the prettiest! Once you get the hang of it, you will want to do it over and over!
