I think it's this braid pattern---

To get the best of both worlds you can have two circular braids around the perimeter and the rest of the braids going straight back.  This way your weave will have a good "anchor" around the perimeter and be flatter without a weave "bump" at the top of the weave.



Here's a step by step--

Those patterns are not the ones discussed in this thred. I believe Amandita has some pics of an extremely similar pattern to the one discussed here in her fotki.
 
It's really not a complicated pattern, it's basically several thin braids going straight back, with the ones closest/nearest to the horseshoe curved around it (braids following the shape of the horseshoe, and the going straight back once it gets to the middle of the back of it). The  horseshoe of your own hair left out is placed in the middle of the front.

Thanks for this. I have a pic. of a braid don't pattern in my fotki. My hair is shoulder length and there was too much bulk at the back. It became a real problem when my hair would get wet from exercise or washing. It was a mother to try to get that ball dry.

What braiding pattern does anyone suggest for someone who has very thin edges in the front and wants a full weave?

Try single braiding (plaits) the edges and connect them, less stress and pulling of the edges and you can sew on just like the french braiding.

I don't even think there is enough hair to do that, it is almost bald.  Would the circular pattern work?

I think it will work - BUT - I would leave my edges alone.

Ok, I will try that, the weave will probably cover the thin edges.  Thanks for your help.
