Pinner ended up buying a couple yards of jersey fabric and made 3 different sized braids and 1 larger non-braided piece. Then she sewed them all together in the back! Make sure each piece is long enough to loop around your neck to get the braided effect
scarf: "get a bunch of yarn, cut into strands at desired length. holding all strands together, sew back and forth at desired intervals with whatever color(s) of thread you have near your sewing machine." neat idea!
