    Looking for help!!

    I'm not sure I'm happy with the sequence of colors for this French braid. I want to use greens and browns as a gift for my sister but this isn't screaming to me "yes, I love it". Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Try moving the third light green strips next to the dark strips that are around the center block. I think it will look nice having the dark center and then the colours going down/up in increasing intensity until they reach the dark brown.

    I suggest taking out the green, to me it doesn't add anything but takes away.

    I would leave the center and brown ends and brown corner squares and use some golds or soft yellow or tan, but whatever you do keep the center it is very pretty. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I would take out the two colors next to the dark green ( looks like a lavender and a flowery print) and replace them with two other shades of green.

    I think they are both right. The lights just stand out too much next to the green and pinks.

    I think your lights are way tooooo light and from the picture you can't even tell that there is any green in them. You need more fabric that has definite green in it and more medium shades, less light shades.
