Method 1 Three-String Braid

  1. Image titled Braid String Step 1

    1

    Purchase spools of string. If you want your string braid to be one color, cut three lengths of the same string. If you want a multi-colored braid, cut three lengths of string in different colors.
    • Make sure that you cut the string in the same exact length each time. A length of one foot is a good starting point for braiding string.

    2

    Gather the ends of the string. Pull them so that they are even.

  3. Image titled Braid String Step 3

    3

    Tie a knot 2 inches from one end. Cut a three-inch (7.5cm) piece of tape and then tape the knotted end to the table.
    • Smooth the tape on the table’s surface so that it will stay while you pull on the string.[1]

    Pick up the third, and middle, string with your right middle finger. As you braid, you will pass the middle string between the middle fingers of your right and left hands.

    Grasp the inner pieces of string in your middle fingers on either side.

Method 3 Eight-String Braid

    1

    Cut eight equal lengths of string. Arrange them so the ends are even.

  2. Image titled Braid String Step 21

    2

    Tape the eight separate lengths of string to your table. This braid will also lay flat.

  3. Image titled Braid String Step 22

    3

    Separate the string into four lengths on the left and four lengths on the right. One will be the right group and one will be the left group. Keep some distance between these two groups as you braid.

  4. Image titled Braid String Step 23

    4

    Start by braiding each string manually so you understand the pattern. Once you understand it, you can try grasping a string in four of your fingers on each hand.

  5. Image titled Braid String Step 24

    5

    Twist the left outer string. Take it over the next string, under the next string and over the last string in the left group. Place it alongside the inner portion of the right group of string.
    • The right group should now have five strings and the left group should have three.
  6. Image titled Braid String Step 25

    Take the right outer string. Take it under, over, under then over. It should now be on the inside of the left group of string.
