Since then the lovely ladies on TPF have asked me for instructions on how to do the plait/braid. It is a bit difficult to show but I hope you get the idea - if you can plait/braid normally then you should be OK with a scarf -you may need to practice it a little bit until it looks right.
Remember you need 3 tails to plait with so they are made up of the 2 tails of the scarf PLUS the bit of the scarf that goes around the back of your neck so you kind of plait onto that piece as you will see in the pictures.
1. Fold scarf in the "Basic Fold"
2. Then the easiest way to do this is to put the scarf around your neck and make a single knot tight enough that you can then pull the scarf off over your head so you can plait it more easily - if you can manage to do it with the scarf on you then that is even better and you will get a longer length of plait, but you may need to be a contortionist to do that or have a friend plait it for you. Try to get the tails of equal length.
3. Get your 3 "tails" and start to plait/braid:-
