Look what I came up with after 15 hours of labor... LOL
I had been thinking seriously about crochet braids for the past one month, and scared of attempting it as well. I must have watched about 100 videos before I finally got the courage to go for it. I am so glad I did and it was not so bad after all. It took that long because I really took my time and wanted it to look presentable since it was my first time.
As always, I have a video which I have not even thought of editing.
The braiding pattern consist of 20 cornrows in the front and 10 in the back. The cornrows in the middle, from the front, were braided in pair into a cornrow, at the back.The cornrows were done with braiding hair. I used braiding hair to give my hair thickness and a firm foundation for crocheting. There will be more info on the video.
I used the crochet needle pictured below, which I got for a dollar at my local beauty supply store.
I used Freetress Bohemian Braid in 1B/33, which has brown highlights. The curl pattern is tight, however, I separated the hair to make the curls looser.
I did not start the cornrows from my edges, if you noticed because I am protecting my hairline.
