Take a new strand and wrap it tightly around the end of plait the same way as on beg, fasten the wrap tightly. Make a loop with the plait that is big enough to pull over the head and fasten the plait tog at the front by tightly wrapping a strand around the same way as on the ends. Cut the yarn ends to desired length (the entire length on strands have been kept on the design in the picture).
