Different guitarists prefer a different method of wrapping their strings around the tuning peg. Some prefer their first wrap-around to go above the exposed end of the string, and then cross over, with all subsequent coils falling below the string end. Your primary concern should be making sure there are several full coils of string wrapped around each tuning peg. Try to make your coils as neat as possible, and be sure they don't wrap on top of each other. Because of it's bulk, you may find the sixth string to coil slightly more awkwardly than the other strings.
