    You could still try it with a half up, or maybe even just a section

    My hair is too slippery for this! I barely got two loops on tailbone length, ii hair. If you have a paranda, this can be a colorful style!

    I bet it would look good with a paranda.

    My hair isn't nearly long enough... So I tried 2 pigtails, then I went to 4 sections and got 2 loops each. But there are definitely NOT any pictures!
    Still, it was fun and I'm looking forward to trying again if I ever grow my hair out to longer than I can currently imagine!

    This is lovely! I was trying to think of how one would accomplish this style ala French braids.

    I tried this yesterday, and while I was able to get three loops out of my hair, I didn't think it looked nice and though it was pretty in a bun, it wouldn't stay. So instead, I made three chains and pinned them back into a bun and that looked pretty

    I've been thinking about this style a lot lately, and I think it would be really pretty if one were to use tiny sections from the nape of the neck and create a hair-headband with them. I personally don't like the way the knot looks at the top of the chain, and this would take care of that issue.

    ALSO if anyone has the stamina I think dozens of chains would look really interesting as an updo, if you put all of your hair into little sections and crocheted them... I actually have a fancy even coming up; I might try it.

    Pigtails



    Maybe would work if I could figure out how to pin them up?
