Flip and repeat
Starting with the spokes on the inside of the hub flange, the process is repeated on the opposite side. Spoke holes in the hub are alternately staggered, so we take the spoke adjacent to the valve hole and use the flange hole that lines up above the one that's to the left (anti-clockwise) of it in the rim. It is important that the lacing is symmetrical, so that when on the bike all spokes on the outside of the flange are angled backwards. These are the spokes subjected to additional tension when braking or due to driving forces.
