Parameters Challenges:

Curves

Lot's of designs are based around radial cornrows, so let's try that with this cool one.

Start the Tutorial!

Sun Rays

A simple loop of cornrows turning each time.

The challenge!

Curves 2

These wavy braids are pretty awesome.

The challenge!

Finger Print

To make loops of loops, you'll need to use the repeat block to make a row of loops, and then another to make that row into a style.

The challenge!

Loops Challenges:

Rays

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use loops to make large complex designs easily.

Rows

A simple loop of cornrows turning each time.

Wavy

These wavy braids are pretty awesome.

Loops of Loops

To make loops of loops, you'll need to use the repeat block to make a row of loops, and then another to make that row into a style.

Functions Challenges:

ZigZag

Many braiders treat a pattern that is repeated as its own method or function. For example, the often seen, square zigzag pattern in cornrows can be seen as one function (a square) repeated over and over again. This makes design simpler. Let's try it.

Radial 2

Making radial braids is so much easier with functions.

The challenge!

Finger Print2

Now that you have functions, you can easily make unique patterns.

The challenge!

Crosses & Boxes

This is an awesome design, and if you can make one, with a function, you can make a whole hairstyle.

The challenge!

Variables Challenges:

User control

Enabling someone to control their hairstyle can be tough, but rewarding.

Start the Tutorial!

Rainbows

Some of these rainbow patterns are really neat, and using variables, you can iterate the color.

The challenge!

Random

Try using random variables to make cool patterns in your function.

The challenge!

User Controlled Iteration

You can let the user set the color, size, length, etc. of your braids too.

The challenge!

Conditionals Challenges:

Cornrows often alternate. You can do that too with conditionals and modulus.

Start the Tutorial!

Repeating Colors

You can make groups of colors repeat by using modulus

The challenge!

Color and Length

You can make your length and color alternate.

The challenge!

Random Fill

Can you make the cornrows fill in randomly without running into each other?

The challenge!
