Starting GSG-Style Half Persian 3 Sheet 6 in 1 - The Easy Way
Article © MAIL User: ZiLi
First start with a piece of European 4 in 1 a bit longer than the to-be-created GSG shall be wide. So you have something to grab, that holds the weave stable in the beginning. After that make a simple HP3-1 (Half Persian 3 in 1) seam, as is shown in tutorials already published by others - just follow the "through the eye, then around the eye" rule. Make it only two rings long if a standard GSG shall be created, or three for a 'GSG-3', and so on. The example shown here will become a GSG-3, a very interesting weave for making stretchy claspless bracelets, as a rubber band can pulled through the closed piece. But joining GSG (or even multi-row variants of) will not be shown here, as it is not really easy - neither to explain, nor to photograph.
After that, start the second half-row by 'seaming the seam' - again following the "through the eye, around the eye" rule. And add more rows in repeating manner, until a sufficient length is reached to have a stable, easy to follow and repeat weave.
Thereafter the E4-1 starter can be removed, and voilà, you have your GSG...
Once you achieved doing GSGs in this ORAAT method, you will maybe find the speed weaving method using preclosed rings for every second half-row. But find it yourself - I won't explain this :D
