Fill-In Braids

After I completed the final CK braid in the Pennsic A&S display, I filled in the rest of the day with these two 8-strand braids.

The first is a simple flat braid made with four plies of #10 crochet cotton per strand. The second is a round hollow braid made with only one ply of #10 crochet cotton per strand. It's been quite a while since I did a braid this fine. This braid is straightforward enough that I barely had to pay attention while working it.
