The third strand is the charm, right? Learn how to braid a gorgeous three-strand loaf by following along with our step-by-step video. Get expert tips on pinching and finishing your braid, and see how the finished dough should look.
Instructions: For method 1: Start from the top. Pinch the ends together and cross the left strand over the middle strand, then cross the right strand over what's now the middle strand. Repeat until you reach the end of the dough, then twist the ends together and pinch.
For method 2: For a more reliably even braid, start braiding in the middle. Cross the left strand over the middle strand, then cross the right strand over what's now the middle strand. Repeat until you get to one end, pinching the strands together. Carefully flip the braid over so the bottom is now on the top, and braid the other side, again starting from the center.
