My "Start Here" video shows these same moves at a slower pace, with only 5 loops. I go faster in this video, and include all 3 variations (divided, square, and flat). I also demo how to unbraid back to fix a mistake (23:50​). It's easier to learn this braid first with only 5 loops, using the RING finger as the active finger. See my even slower 5 loop videos...or follow this one, but with one less loop on each hand.

See my playlists for other types of braids, also check out my blog--it has even more braiding tutorials (how to make extra-long braids, starting braids without any loose ends, easier ways to make classic medieval braids etc).

N.B: I made an error at the point where I am showing the sides of the square braid @10:30​. I said that the top and bottom surfaces show chevrons and the 2 side surfaces show "zigs"---it's really the other way around (chevron designs are on the side surfaces, not the surfaces that face toward and away from the braider).
