# Half Persian 4 in 1(CGI)Article © MAIL User: Eli

The Half Persian 4 in 1 is a very tricky weave and takes quite some time to learn. Don't be discouraged if the first attempt doesn't succeed. You'll figure it out. The most common error is not placing the rings in the beginning in the correct manner. If you don't place them right you'll probably get something the looks like HP 4in1 but is not. The best way to test a chain before investing lots of time in it is to lift it once it's of reasonable length (about 5 top rings). If the chain holds it shape it's OK. If it loses the shape and spirals a bit you need to start again. The difficulty of beginning this weave results in many people keeping short HP 4in1 "tails" to begin a new chain.

Silver rings are rings being added to the weave at the step. Brass-yellow rings are the rings the new ones pass through. Copper-red rings are idle rings at the step.

The rings in this tutorial have an AR of 6.

1. Close 4 rings:

2. Pass a new ring through the four rings you closed, close it and lay them exactly as shown. It won't work otherwise:

3. Place a closed ring under the last ring in the chain:

4. Pass a new ring through the three last rings of the chain and the new ring. Make sure the ring is added correctly, like shown here:

5. Place another closed ring under the end of the chain:

6. Pass a new ring through the three last rings of the chain and the new ring. Make sure the ring is added correctly, like shown here:

7. Continue to add rings as in steps 5 and 6 to lengthen the chain:

Unlike HP 3in1, HP 4in1 is symmetrical on both sides:
