DIY Braided Scraf II

Another scarf that I saw in Pinterest struck me and feel in love with it. I got some ideato Desiree of Suddenly Found here but I made few changes that I think it would be easy for me.  

Here's how I did it.

My fabric is a jersey knit that is 72 inches in length but I cut it to 62 inches (to create a about 30 inches loops). Set aside the remaining. For this project you will need about 45 inches width. (It's up to you if you want to lessen the measurement the fabric.)

First cut the fabric into seven parts.  The first measurement (from left) is 4 inches (make 3 pieces), the middle is 6 inches (make 3 pieces also), and the last fabric is 14 inches (just one piece).

Gather the first three cut fabrics. Mark both end of each fabric with I, II, III. Why? So you can be able to know which one is end of which. (See below photo)

Tie together to a post or hook. Start braiding.

Once done, tie the end with a small piece of extra fabric or anything that will secure the braided fabrics.

Do the same in the next three pieces of 6 inches fabrics. Keep both end tied. Locate the same marked numbers (as seen in the second photo above). 

Sew both ends. Do the same for the other two (As shown below).

Remove the tie on both ends and start braiding again for the remaining fabric (see photo below for illustration).

Once braiding is done, insert a piece of fabric (see photo below) to secure the braid and tie at least twice. You will end up like this.

For the 14-inch fabric just sew both ends to create a loop(sorry I forgot to take picture).

To bundle the two braids and the 14 inch fabric, cut a rectangular shape on the remaining fabric and sew the two shorter ends (I wasted some thread for the longer end.). Then flip your sewn fabric to show the "right" side.

Gather the three and bundle it with the small piece of fabric (above) and sew as close as possible to the three (see below).

Cut the excess fabric. (This is the part why I wasted thread because I sew the large end shown above but then I cut that excess end. Lol!)

Flip the fabric so it will not show the "wrong" side.

Here's what I mean.

Here's when it's just hanging in my shoulder.

Here's when it's loop twice.

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 
”The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, 
and they will call him Immanuel”-- which means, “God with us.”
