HP 4in1 was it tricky for you?

After several attempts to make Half Persian 4in1, I finally got it right. I was just wondering if I was being pathetically hopeless or if any one else had problems with this weave when they first tried it?

Oh yeah. I swore, I cursed, I raged, I threw it across the room. Then all of a sudden I worked it out and I wondered what on earth was so damn hard about it Very Happy . Now it's my favourite weave, though Jens Pind (boy did I hate that one) and Byzantine aren't too far behind. Even the mobile phone has a HP 4-1 chain on it ... Finding it frustrating is part of the satisfaction in conquering this weave. Especially since I found Full Persian so easy ... You'd think Half would have to be easier wouldn't you? Yet HP is a paradox, which is probably why I love it.

It's nice to get some feedback. It's funny I had no problem with FP 6in1 and conquered Byz on the second try but HP 4in1 was terrible.Also I don't think that having a 2 year old pulling on the other end helps. Typically about 20 minutes after a posted a 'Help me I can't do this' thread, I did it! And you're right it seems easy now. Very Happy

I first tryed it a few months ago, I think I was just half asleep, and I never bothered to try again till about 2 weeks ago.

I had been playing with hp 3in1 a lot an it just fell together, 5in1 as well. I thought I knew a lot about hp (atleast when it comes to 3in1) but I think I just about doubled my knowledge with hp.

Meh. Was slightly easy for me. Up until now, the only weave i'm having difficulty with is Elfweave. Granted, I'm using 12 ga. 3/8", that might be the issue.

I found it easier than HP3-1. Pretty damn easy, really.

S7evyn - Elfweave is tough at first. Keep at it, you'll get it!

Ooo you bunch of smart a***s. Razz Well it took some time but I've got the knack now. I've just completed a sterling silver HP 4in1 1mm wire 5mm ID bracelet and it's so nice I think I'll keep it. It will be the first thing (jewellery wise) that I've kept for myself!

i'll be honest, i'm lucky to have any hair left at all after learning hp 4in1... like zilla, i swore, i cursed , i threw it across the room and then all at once it just fell into place for me and it's been easy ever since. Very Happy so you're not alone! keep at it and happy mailling!

My initial problem with HP4:1 was purely intimidation, I had heard so much about how difficult it was. That plus I didn't really get what the instructions were telling me to do. So I let it sit for a few months, then came back and found different instructions, and now I can do it without hardly thinking about it.

I found out in about 10 minutes, I think, but I still have to look at an instruction to remember the first step once in a while... That is mainly because I don't do this weave often. I like the sheet weaves a lot better than chain weaves... Coif LoL
