Bit now it’s all about increasing our stitches. Now we’ve just done the decrease so let’s go back to the center point so under and around and back in and so now we’re going to come to the second one on this side. So we need to come incrementally every line has to come do the same. So if I go in seven on one side, I'm going to do seven on the other and this is how we have to increase now because the bottom section is more dramatic.
Okay so now let’s wrap to the center and now let’s go to the third so one, two and three. Okay so pulling over, so third. Okay so we just gone on the third on this side so let’s do the third on the other side so let’s do the third on the other side, so back to the center, one, two and three, and over. Okay, so now let’s go back to the center so wrap and wrap. So now we go to the fourth on this side so one, two, three and four. So that’s four on this side so now let’s go back to the center and do four on this side so one, two, three and four. We’re making our way back to seven, that’s—if I didn’t say that which I don’t think I did or we’re working our way back to seven.
Okay so if you lose count at any point, just look where this is finishing and then you’ll know, so one, two, three and four so this is the fourth. So now we’re working our way back to the center point and now we’re going to work our way to the fifth, so one, two, three, four and five and pulling over. Okay and let’s come back to the center point. Okay now we just did five of those side so five at this side so one, two, three, four and five. So that’s five so let’s go back to the center point, back to the center. Okay so now we go six, one, two, oops, center—excuse me, let’s gp back to the center. Okay so one, two, three, four, five and six. Okay and now let’s go back to the center point okay and so now let’s go six this side so one, two, three, four, five and six. And you can tell that it’s six because they are—it’s the seventh. Just in case you're wondering. So it’s—
Okay so that was six and now we’re going back so to the center point. So now we go to the seventh so one, two, three, four, five, six and seven and you’ll notice on this one here is that the—see how the red is divided? Because when we came over the first time, we only went to the sixth. So in this case this is what balances both of them off for the two colors. So that was to the seventh one.
Okay so that was seventh on the one side and now we are going to finish up the final one at seventh going in the other direction so let’s go back to the center point, okay so seven, so and then the easy way to tell is where you start this right and that was seven, will count it anyway so one, two, three, four, five, six and seven and if you done your math right, then it will end up back right there. So this is seven and we’re just pulling everything back over and this is the heel then completed and it’s just a matter of picking up the red color again or whatever color you chose and continuing along for your next section. And we are—this is probably the hardest part to understand this whole concept but as you can just see, it’s really not that difficult once you get the concept of what you're doing, if that makes any sense.
Okay so there we go, so what we’re going to do is that we’re just going to—what I would do is just cut your string, the colored string, don’t cut the—so colored string and tie it into like a regular knot and put that not over the seventh one and that will trap it, it looks off a little bit, I’ll try redoing that. So let’s try it again, we want to do a tie and then place that actual circle part over the actual seventh loop and pull it nice and tight. So there you go, it’s fastened.
So you can see on the back side of it, you can see it’s really small at the top here and really big down here and this will allow the actual booty to fall—or stocking to actually fall in a proper formation.
