Yes, I did it. :) 8 strand plaited loaf, here it is.
It was quite tricky, but I managed to carry on plaiting the dough. I'm proud of myself about the result.
The bread recipe is the usual one. Please take a look at my basic loaf recipe. (click here)
For the following braiding sequence, number the strands of dough from 1-8 from left to right.
Every time you move any strand it will take the new number of its position in the row.
Step 2: place 2 under 3 and over 8
Step 3: place 1 over 4
Step 4: place 7 under 6 and over 1
Step 5: place 8 over 5
Repeat steps 2-5, until all the dough is braided.
beautiful sequence on the bottom, too.
I found more good instructions in addition to the famous Paul Hollywood's video from the GBBO.
