Step 3: Ending

Cut and singe the ends of the color you don't want as the diamond braid

Step 4: Beginning the Diamond Braid

- 2 make a loop as depicted
- 3 take the unused end and go under the other and over under over as depicted
- 4 bring top strand around and pass the loop around your your finger under and through the center hole
- 5 do the same with the other strand
