Space Monkey's Belt

 

Some people have difficulties with the STREAK in the belt of my Space Monkey pattern.
I hope you’ll find the belt much easier with this photo tutorial.

The utility belt of Space Monkey is made with Stylecraft Graphite, for these pictures I’ve used green cotton.

In the pattern it’s described like this:
1 STREAK: 1sc in the front loop,leaving the last loop on your hook. Continue with 1sc in the front loop of each of the previous three rounds, keeping the last loops on your hook until you have 5 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the first 4 loops, then yarn over and pull through the last two loops.

Here’s a more detailed description

First place your hook in the front loop like in the picture, downwards.

Pick up your yarn and pull it through the front loop. But leave the loop on your hook.

Repeat these steps with the remaining front loops of the previous 3 rounds until you end up with 5 loops on your hook.
