Christine here. OK, here it is, my first venture into posting a video on YouTube (and Marjorie Kauffman did all the work — filming, editing, uploading, etc). I admit that I have no future in Hollywood!! But focus on the technique: I think the butting technique is shown pretty well and that people should be able to follow the instructions… I hope so, anyway!
In the future, I’ll work on versions of this for right opening braiders and for same-colored braids (which are pretty easy with this technique: you just need to buy colored safety pins and you’re all set).
