Today we are taking a closer look at the 5 strand braid. It looks very difficult to do, but it’s actually very easy once you know the “rhythm” of the braid. It goes like this “Over and under on one side, then over and under on the other side”. Remember that, while you are braiding and you can keep repeating it, if you find that helpful!
