Four Stranded, Fishtailed and Upside-Down French Milkmaids

I don’t know how to braid hair.

I know!
This after that boast post yesterday about what a capable father I am…

And we’re probably not far from the day when we’ll need to pull Daphne’s hair back.

It’s getting long as it is…

And I don’t have the first friggin’ clue of how to do this properly.

So I’m doing what I assume all neophathers do when faced with this kind of situation.


The problem is, now I’m even more confused by all the various types and styles of braids.  3 and 4 strand, upside-down, milkmaid, fishDutch, etc, etc.

I don’t want to fall into the trap of thinking, “pshh, how hard can it be?” simply because I can tie a monkey’s fist or cockscomb a tiller.

That is, unless Daphne wants a bowline tied into her hair.

That I can totally do.
