Okay, so I'm going to show you the Hexagonal Braided Stitch, which is the tightest stitch of all of them which is the actual what I've done that with. So you want to prepare ones you will be attaching too. So you got your loose string, you just put your needle into the very next stereo piece just pull that loose one through. And you can pull it as tight as you want it will like come back to the regular shape, you know, everything does in crochet. So you just keep going along the other circle, okay. So now that’s prepared so let's start our next circle and again—I have tutorials on how to make this Yoyos in better shape. I just want to focus on the actual how to join then together.
So let's go, so one, two, three and four attaching it to the start and what I do it's my little tip of the day is that when I pull this through because this is a slip stitch pull that through there and see there I put my thumb and my index, my forefinger or my nasty finger into the center. So that when I left it you can actually feel the center point. So then I immediately just start chaining up three so one, two, three and all I do is slide my thumb out of the way and put it into the center of the hole. It saves you time if you do that, so I have and locate that center next time.
So we want to do 12 double trebles all way around the three chaining up that you did is counted as one treble. Okay, and this loose string what I want to do, is I want to pull it around. So then we can actually trap that string into the center point. Okay, so it just goes there and see it's just going to work its way in to the center. And you know as I haven’t really start the counting I need 12 and I always loose count so I don’t bother I just make enough for them that it looks like it's close and then I count and then finish it.
Again I'm holding that little loose string down. That is making a part of the line. Go one more and then I’ll count. We need 12 remember, so the first one is your one, so I tend to count toward the outside so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 so I need to two more. I'm not going to do any color changing on this one, so two more. Okay, so what's happened now is that I didn’t actually—you got a loose piece left over in the middle I can trim this now, it will not get lost because we know that it has made it's way around the inner part of the circle, so it won't fall out.
Okay, so what we need to do is stitch it into just it's a slip stitch. So the best way to look at it is that you could see one whole right there. You see the next one because they start changing, going to the second one and make sure you grab your two strings and pull it through, and pull it through there. Okay, so now what you need to do, what I do is I always start at the same point, I always—so what I do is I chained up through, so one, two and three and then we go into the very next stitch with the single stitch. Okay, so I do this for every one of them I get is started. Okay, and now I'm looking toward my material, okay.
And I find this so much easier if you lie it down. Okay, so what you got to do is you got to look here. And this hole here and this hole are joined. So the next two free holes are here and here, here and here. So this is where I want to attach the three or the four pieces. So what we need to do is we need to take it off the loop. Okay, stick your needle into the last one and pull through. And basically, you know, we've chained when we went around this ones. All we're doing is we're chaining again but the first chain is just going to have the—it looped around that yellow piece.
Okay, so that’s one chain, two and three. And on the third one you're going to come down into your working material and look for the next available stitch and single stitch that sucker in. Okay, in a perfect world these loose pieces would not have fallen out. And you know what I've grabbed it by the wrong one, actually I backed it and one went over here. So I'm going to keep this error in there just to show you that and the reason why I notice that this one here is already attached so I don’t want that one, I want this one. So we're going to stick it into that one.
And again I worked this on my lap. One, two and three coming into the next available stitch into the working material, pull it through for a single. Okay, pull it out again going to the next. I'm going to make sure that this loose pieces going to get held in. So it's one, two and three going into the next available stitch, it is hexagonal so L side going to attached to something.
Okay, so the next available stitch is right here and here. So what I have to do is rotate my material to make it easier for me to visualize it. So one, two and three, okay and now the last one because you got to have two sides, right in here. So one, two and three attaching into the same material and now you're officially done attaching it. Okay, so what you need to do is just finish off the Yoyo. So one, two and three into the next hole one, two and three, the next hole and then one, two and three, the next hole and then one, two and three, the next hole and then one, two and three, the next hole one, two and three, the next hole and this should be the final one, two and three.
And I always, always, always go back and count to make sure. So, on the very last circle instead of going into this stitch her, I go into the one that’s climbing up. So at the first chain, sorry, I go into the first chain right there and you know what I double crochet that looking idiot. I mean it's got a single crochet just stick your needle in pull through and pull through. Okay, so now we wanted to double count, double check our count. So we have one, two, three, four, and five so this is where I screw up all the time. It's easier if you lay it down, so you got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11 and 12. And you should have 12 loops on the exterior and what I do is I reach over when I'm grabbing it. How I measure? Well I pull it nice and tight, grab my scissors and I cut right on my forefinger here and not only the enough material so that when I cut it, I can just wrap it back into the exterior like I showed them in the very beginning. So this is a Hexagonal Braided Stitch.
