Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You will need my previous 4-Strand Braid Wrap tutorial. In addition, to complete this tutorial you should have basic knowledge of wire tools. I'll show you the rest!

Pattern Description:

The second part of my 4-strand braid wrap tutorial, this builds on my "Wrap with a 4-Strand Braid" tutorial, available here for only $1. You can also review the accompanying video tutorial on Youtube, linked within this download file.

NOTE: One or both of these resources is required to complete this advanced braid wrap.

I am an online course developer, so I know how to teach you, no matter how you learn best!
