I can not cornrow worth much, but I can flat twist like a champ. . SO I have scoured all over the YouTube universe to see if anyone else has used that technique for their crochet situation, and I can only find one young lady that does it. I want to give it a try with the flat twist too, but I don't know if they are going to hold very well. In the video I saw, the YouTuber (can't remember her name) said they only last 2-3 weeks. I need to get more time than that out of this style. Should I stop being a cheapo and just get someone to do them for me?
