Okay, I'm not really that great at explaining these things. And, the picture isn't that great either. What you can't see, is that on top of her head, there is another "cross of hair", (so that it looks like a shoelace.) Hence my term "Lacing." Just start by making a part down the middle (like for pigtails.) Make two little ponies in the front, cross those ponies and add them to the next two ponies in the middle. Then, cross these and add them to the bottom two ponies. Add some elastics to the bottoms. (I'm sure you can figure it out!!)
Here's the front view. Doesn't she just look so thrilled????
