Day 304 and Rugby
Here's one for the non-knitter, non-hookster that anyone can do. If you don't know how to do a basic three strand braid, just ask the first person you see with hair that passes the shoulders. It's like a global law that folks with long hair must know how to braid.
Anyway, I used 9 braids each with 6 strands. The strands were cut about 2 yards/meters long. Once I had all of them braided, I used all nine strands together as a 3 strand braid held multiple. I kept them as flat as possible, but if you really want it to hold the nice flat braid shape it would be a good idea to sew a straight line across every 4 or 5 inches. You'll need to sew across the very top and the very bottom anyway as the easiest way to secure the braid in place.
