Braids

Cut six 30” strands of the red and white yarns (total= 12 strands). Holding all of the strands, fold in half and pass the folded loop through the bottom of the ear flap (use hook to help). Pass the strand ends through the loop and pull tight to form a knot. Divide the strands into three sections (8 strands in each) and braid.  Repeat for 2nd braid.
