- 4 Strands

The four strand braid is fairly simple since there aren't many ways you can braid with a limited amount of strands. In the images below I've shown the loose braid on the left so it is easier to see where the strands are going. The tight braid, images on the right, show how the braid will look as it is worked.



I've started with four strands tied off in the middle with two strands crossed.

Starting with the top strand on the right, bring the strand behind and under one strand and over the other.

Take the top left strand and bring it behind and under one strand and over the other.

With the top strand on the right, bring the strand behind and under one strand and over the other.

I think you get the idea, working from each side bring the top strand behind then under one strand then over the other strand. Since you repeat this same step on each side this is considered to be a single step braid. Here's a photo of a braided length.
