First is the straight vertical line. Now, start the 2nd stroke from the top horizontally going right and through the vertical line. Cut back diagonally down until slightly past this stroke’s starting point.

From here, retrace the line up but angled slightly more down. Continue straight out at this angle until past the original starting height of this stroke. At this point, curve sharply down vertically and finally tail off right at the bottom.
