We are almost certain that you have seen someone rocking this pattern. This braid style begins at the front of your head and goes all the way to the back.

The vixen crochet pattern is done by parting the hair in four (4) sections then applying the beehive braid pattern (as mentioned in number four above) to each section individually. So instead of having just one huge beehive, you will end up with four miniature ones. The vixen allows for a variety of styling options with ponytails and up-dos to your heart’s content.
3. U Part Cornrows
With crocheting a U Part can be done by braiding the hair straight back as explained in number one above. In the middle the braids must be crossed over one another. The curve looks more natural than a straight part. This type of braiding allows for more hair to be added on the braids during installation.
This crochet braid pattern begins like the straight back however it does not go all the way to the back. Rather it goes horizontally or left to right which looks like letter m’s in the hair. It provides a flat surface and a natural look.
This crochet braid pattern is not unfamiliar to weave lovers. This pattern is the most commonly used when installing weave but it can also be used to install crochet hair. This type of crochet braid pattern is done by braiding the hair around and around in a spiral like structure. It starts from the side of your head and ends in the middle. This type of pattern lays flat on your head and makes the crochet hair look very natural.
We sure hope that these braid patterns at least provided some light on which crochet braid pattern you can use for which type of crochet hairstyle that you would like to install.
