For this stitch here what were going to do it’s a half double crochet and what we need to do is that we need to just chain one, so leaving your finger here right at the starting stitch just chain one. So just chain one, okay. So what were going to do now is wrap your needle around and see where you finger and thumb are covering you're going to go into that same stitch. And what you're going to do is you're going to put that material through see, how about three in the hook. And when this is a half double crochet so you're going to pull through all three.
And what we want to do, pull through out three. What we want to do is we want to put another stitch half double crochet into that same hole. So just grab in your material, go into that hole, pulling it through two, sorry, pulling it through all three. So it’s a half double crochet, so now what you're going to do, you're going to put four half double crochets in a row in the next four stitches. So they go into their next stitch grabbing your material, pulling it through and pulling it through all three. So it was number one, wrapping your material going into the next stitch. Okay, pulling it through all three, wrapping your material going into the next stitch, pulling it through, pulling it through all three.
Okay and this is the final one. So there is a point on pushing it through, pulling it through and then pulling it through all three. So what we want to do is were actually now working our way down even though you can't tell this at this point but were actually working our way down, in order to for it to bend the material to go back up. What we need to do is we need to half double crochet but we need to skip over the next two empty stitches. So this is one stitch here okay and this is an empty stitch, so that I would skip over that so go into third empty.
So were going to stick your needle in pulling it through. Okay, pull through all three, okay. And then what you're going to do is you just pull through. So what you're going to do now, you just half double crochet the next four in a row. So that was one, going into the next stitch, two going into the next stitch, three going into the next stitch and its four. And so on this stitch your have four stitch what you need to do is you need to put an extra two in there. So what were going to do and this is you see how it’s already starting to do the bend on its own and that the bend is actually quite sharp, you see that.
So what we would need to do on the fourth one here we've just put one in we need to put two more in there, so we actually have three of the top of that one. Also that is two and three, okay. So in actual fact what it is? Is the one that, so the actual middle one of the three is actually the center point of the actual chevron on the upper side. So what we need to do now is go down the other side and that’s for another four, so just go down four, half double crochet is, so that was one going into the next stitch, two, going into the next stitch, three going into the next stitch and this is your fourth.
So now, we were actually going down can see you that? Were actually working our way down now, so we want to work our way back up, so in order to do it I’m with the first line we have to skip the next two empty stitches so there's the empty stitch. There is the next empty stitch, hopefully you can see that. So we want to go into the third empty stitch for a half double crochet. And that causes that bend to take place. So what we’re going to do now is just half double crochet. Now, were at the end of the line if you’ve had more material to go you just keep going in that same pattern like I've just showed you. And on the very last stitch what you're going to do in order to keep it flat like any other chevron, we need to put an extra stitch on the very end.
One so there's actually two always going into the last one. And that causes it to stay flat along the side. So there is line number one. And you know what, I won't worry about that, can you see how its really kind of, I think that will fix itself so.
