As a kid, I wore my hair in braids pretty much all the time. Really- one braid or two, usually french-braided, was my go-to for years. I'd brush my hair, then go sit down in front of my mother's bed, and she'd braid my hair while she listened to NPR and I read.
I have a long history with braids, in other words. And I love them, they're beautiful. I enjoy playing with different braids for challah, and braiding the dangly edging of my scarves when I'm bored.
I also love playing with braids on my coverings. In the past, I've braided the ends of my scarves, or taken those braided ends and wrapped it around a bun.
This time, I made a braid first, then tied it on around my head.
This one was four-stranded, made of two scarves folded in half and looped together, and sort of improvised. You could just as easily group two ends together, and make a regular three-stranded braid.
