Tie in the olive body thread and then the cream on top, both in reverse.

Tie in the brahma with the tips facing the rear of the hook and roll the fibers so they are on the sides of the hook shank. Then trim
Fold the cream body thread forward, making sure to keep the brahma to each side
Fold the olive forward the same, making sure to leave the cream visible in the center of the two.
