Cross over with the right thread through the last A added on the left. Pull your threads up evenly so the bicones move to the center. You should have a circle of A. See image 1a
*HINT* You will be turning your piece counterclockwise as you work, weaving around this circle of 4B. 2.
Pick up 1 B, 1 C, and 1 B with the left thread. Cross over with the right thread through the last B added. See image 1b. 3.
Position your piece so the B, C, and B just added are to the left. Weave the R thread through the A just above where the thread is emerging. See image 1c. 4. Pick up 1 C and 1 B with the left thread. Cross over with the right thread through the last B added on the left. See image 1d.
