Fold the rectangle in half. Line up your stitches. I recommend using locking stitch markers to keep the stitches lined up.
Now we need to crochet around the opening of the hood to give it a finished look.
With the hood facing you, join the yarn on the left side. Chain 2 and half double crochet around both sides of the hood and the top of the hood.
Now we need to add the braids.
Cut twelve 30” strands of yarn for each braid. Fold the strands in half and pass the folded loop through the front corner. Use a crochet 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.
