Introductions for How to Rawhide Braid as a Cowboy Craft

    Three-Strand Braid

    • 1). Cut the rawhide strip into three equal sections, leaving 1 inch of uncut rawhide at the top.

    • 2). Braid the strands together like you would when you braid someone's hair: Place the left piece in the middle over the center piece, then bring the right piece over the middle. (The outside piece always crosses over the middle piece.) Keep going side to side until the entire rawhide strand is braided.

    • 3). Sew the three stands together at the bottom with a few stitches.

    Four-Strand Braid

    • 1). Cut the rawhide strip into four equal sections, leaving 1 inch of uncut rawhide at the top.

    • 2). Label your strands A, B, C and D with a disappearing ink pen.

    • 3). Cross strand C over strand B and under strand A. Cross strand B over strand D.

    • 4). Continue crossing the middle pieces over and under using the same pattern until you reach the end of the strands.

    • 5). Sew the ends together to prevent the braid from fraying.

    Trick Braid

    • 1). Cut two slits into the leather, leaving 1 inch at the top and bottom.

    • 2). Cross the strands over each other the same way you would for a standard, three-strand braid. The only difference is that the bottom will form while you are forming the top.

    • 3). Sew the center of the strand together with the needle and thread to prevent the braid from unraveling.
