I would not pre-weave the top three crosses before tying off the mains if blocked holes are the concern.
I would finish the mains and tie off as usual. I would enlarge hole 8 (using a smooth awl and a bit of chapstick or something like that) on each side at the top of the racquet before mounting the racquet
so that getting the top cross through hole 8 around the main string otherwise blocking hole 8 won't be an isue. Enlarging a couple grommets is quick and easy. I would also enlarge hole 8 on each side at the bottom of the racquet for the same reason.
Babolat suggests tying the bottom cross to hole 10, which is the next to last cross.
