  5. 5

    Measure out and cut 8 strands of color B, C, and D that are twice the size that you want your braids to be. (4 for each side of each color.)

    Total strands you should have: 24

    Make sure they are all the same size, or very close.

  6. How to make a beanie. The Twiggy Hat - Step 6 6

    Attach the strands 2 at a time, keep the colors close to each other.

    You should have 4 strands of color b next to each other, 4 strands of color c together, and 4 of D together, on each side in the ch 3 space.

    Then braid them together, and when done, wrap a piece of yarn around the bottoms to tie it off and secure it. Then trim the ends to even off.

  7. 7

    Done! :) You've just completed the Twiggy Hat! This fits most teens and adults. For small children sizes, keep an eye out for my WIP, the "Salem Hat" Salem is my 3 year old, and I plan to make a similar hat to the Twiggy hat for him.
