zig-zag braids

This might look a lot more complicating than what it really is. It's actually quite easy. All you have to be able to do is know how to do a regular braid.
First, make 3 piggies on each side.
I started with the top right & braided it.
Take it across, over to the top left. Add your elastic.
Braid the top left & cross it down to the middle right, add your elastic. Then braid that & cross it over to the middle left. See the pattern - you are making a zig-zag pattern. But stop there.
Now, go to your bottom left & braid that.
Cross it over to the bottom right & add your elastic.
Braid that & add it to the middle left so that the zig - zags meet in the middle to make a side pony tail.
Curl the pony & add your cute bow. That's it. Not too complicating, right?
side view: (& the bow is from Oh So Girly...isn't it oh so cute!)
