Gudrun (baby blue with lavendar)
This is a stiff braid from Swizterland that I love to make more dramatic and wider brims with. Each time I try to do these, they vary in outcome, so always a bit of a surprise. The back is much narrower, about 2.5 inches, enough to shade your neck but not get in the way. Frontside is almost 5 inches wide.
Gudrun is from DH Lawrence, one of the sisters in Women in Love. They were not shy and had fun with their clothes in a time when it wasn't that acceptable.
