The braid was left VERY loose for better viewing purposes.  When you do this, pull strings tighter.

Take the center strings and tie them off.  This alone will NOT keep the entire braid together.  This was done temporarily  while adding beads.  Add a few beads to each strand, then tie strands to one another until they are all knotted with each other.
