Braiding a Rug?

Why is this so difficult? I've braided my daughter's hair. Why can't I seem to figure this out?

I think I've been braiding the wrong way all of these years!?

I've always braided left over center then right over center. I would end up with a nice braid but I guess that's not the right way to do it?

I'm trying to make a braided rug for my beach house.

Over, under, around and through...

I can see this is going to take a very long time!
My eyes are crossed already!

If you'd like to see how this is supposed to be done, check out Casey's Minis.

I've always braided the way you describe also- maybe this way of braiding makes a flatter braid for the rug? I can't wait to see the finished rug- I love the colors!

Kathi, that tutorial is mine at Casey's Minis. Your url leads to mine anyway.LOL And I braid just exactly like you do. I didn't include the how to braid part because I assumed that you would know how, and you do. Do it your way.It's easy,but takes a long time to get enough braid to make a decent sized rug. Have at it!

Sorry Casey, I fixed it.

Thanks Kathi, no problem. Now how about a photo of your progress? Those colors are going to be perfect in the beach cottage.
