How to Create Braided Roving

When people sell rovings on Etsy, they always come in very pretty braids.   As I started dyeing my own rovings, I wanted to explore the best ways to prettily store them.  In the following to video tutorials, there are two different methods for creating roving braids:  1) By actually braiding the roving and 2) by crocheting the roving (looks like a braid).  I learned how to "braid" the roving first, but then I learned from purchasing other braids that more people actually crochet them.
