For braid:
                For this beanie i braided using my hand.. Hold your desire color of yarns together and attach them into the side and grab it on the other side and start making the braid..

                   Another easy method of making braid is hold the yarns and insert the big size hook in any of the side stitches and start making the chain stitch..

Attach flower to your desire.. And your shell pattern braided beanie is ready.. :)
