|Arrange your strings like this. See your strings as pairs.||Take the right string of each pair and let it jump over the string on its left.||Now skip one string and count, take the left string of each pair and let it jump over the string on its right.||From here on you just repeat, right string of each pair to the left.||Skipping the first string, left string of each pair to the right. And go on and on.|
|A different aproach.|
|Take the middle pair and jump the right over the left.||Take the ones next to that pair and cross them, left over right, with the strings of the middle pair.||Cross the new middle pair, right over left.||Work the outer left to the middle,
going under-one over-one.
|Go on till the string is in the middle, next work the rightmost string to the middle, starting with over-one. Go on till it has crossed the string you just got from the left. Keep going, one from the left, one from the right.||You can also change from the methode above to this one, or the other way round, as long as each string goes over-one under-one all the time, and meets the edges of the braid before changing direction.|
