Step 1: Attempt to clean enough crap off your floor so that you won't have to photoshop the photos.
Step 2: I didn't have any extra adult hands so I strung my yarn between a table leg and a jar. They are approximately 14 feet apart.
Step 3: Pull yarn taut and clip loops at both ends (where they were wrapped around) making a bunch of yarn 14 feet long.
Step 4: Double by folding in half. (notice that I didn't clip the ends which caused me issues later - thus the reason for the inclusion into the directions!)
Step 5: Using a sturdy hair tie, tie a knot in the middle of the yarn around the hair tie.
Step 6: Braid as usual.
Step 7: Trim ends.
Step 8: Finished product!
