Day 12 of the 30 Day Braiding Challenge – 30 Days of New Braids.
Today’s challenge is the 5 strand ribbon braid. This is certainly a little more challenging at first, but it’s so fun to do once you get the hang of it! If you have been following along the braiding challenge so far this month, then you have already seen or tried the 4 strand ribbon braid and a regular 5 strand braid, so you can do this one today! The 5 strand ribbon braid is one that I was SO excited when I first learned, and I hope that you will feel that excitement too.
Additional Ways to Use the Technique
