Bent-wire crochet: remounts

Where a clown remounts the horse, or, in plain speech, at the base of a crochet stitch, the left/right rhythm of the chain needs to be maintained. The approach diagrammed above seems to be the most practical. The reach, the first part of the crochet stitch (the angled red line in the diagram,) determines the path of the returning chain stitches. The reach needs to be angled backwards so that at least one of the fully completed links of the chain can be engaged. In the finished fabric this three-way join will be deformed into a nearly equiangular 'Y.'
