Okay, so what were going to do is grab your material and turn it again. So you really can start seeing the circles just absolutely pop out of this thing. So what we’re going to do, now we’re working on the next row and we’re working on the top making the half moons coming over the horizon again. So what we've got, we have two here. So we have to create two double crochets in a row, so one and two and three. So that classifies as one of them right and so now we have to do one more. So wrap in your material playing it in so its your two and two. So that chaining up of the four, sorry, the chaining up of the three made actually, it makes the actual double crochet. I think I screwed that up, hang on.
So we got there it’s a double crochet, so its only chain three up. So one, two and three, so that counts us the first one do you see that, see how its matching and wrapping the material around going into the next stitch and that creates a second one. Do you see that? Okay, so wrap and wrap and into the center of that circle, okay. You can really clearly see it there. Okay and we want to put seven of this triple crochets right over the top into that same hole. About putting an inch to the same hole, it causes the circle to happen. So now, in fact every circle it’s actually two lines of material in order to form that, right.
So five, sorry, that’s four, this should be number five. On the pattern that you see in behind you know its quite possible if you don’t count properly that you, you end up with a circle that doesn’t have as many pin wheels stroke, spokes at it should. And you know what if that ever happens to you, just fake it. Okay, so you got your seven in a row, so now what you're going to do is look for where it’s double crochet over top the red circle and grab your material and double crochet into three stitches in a row.
Okay, so now we can go into the next circle so wrap and wrap and into the very center gap of there the next circle. Putting another seven, one-two, okay, one-two, one-two, wrap and wrap, one-two and wrap and wrap for this is just the same things. All right, we want to remember it, so you got a six in there so far as the wrap and wrap into the same spot, so now you got seven. So you want to secure it down into the spot with the next three double crochet as that should be over the top of the red. So wrap ones going into the top of the other circle where its double crochets. Do you see how it looks different?
That here is going to toward the spoke, right and this one here is going up toward my hook that’s up there so it just, there’s no, its not for leading to anywhere that’s how you would see it the best. So let's go three double crochets, right in the row. Okay, so looking next forward going into the next top of the circle, so one and two into the center, wrap and wrap. So the seven again in the circle wrap and wrap, wrap and wrap, one-two, wrap and wrap or one-two are just the same thing it’s just me being difficult.
Okay, so you got six wrap and wrap, wrap and wrap, okay. And now you want to fasten that in the place again with the double crochet where it’s already double crocheted over the top of the red circle there. And for the three in a row, it’s when you get to the very edges that you have to just change your thinking up a little bit and adjust to doing these half semicircles. Okay, so we got a full semicircle here a thing to go, so one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and eight so that’s good. So we want to wrap and wrap and at the very end of this we should be just double crocheting only one going up to wrap and wrap.
And how do I know that because if you look at the pattern underneath it, its only one double crochet going up. So that’s four, one and two, one and two, so we got six, one and two, okay. So then if you're confused look at what is underneath you, okay, so what we have—see how you had one double crochet here, okay.
You're going to have one double crochet up on top of here. See it’s a long way to look back behind you but you have to maintain that because if you don’t and then you end up with a lap sided blanket that is growing up on angle. And so it’s the most common complain I get about this stitch. So there you go and we’ll call that wraps to this and that is how you do the jumbo pin wheel stitch and this stitch is actually really fantastic. And it looks different from either on however we turn it its kind of neat. And it’s got a little bit of a bump pattern to it and I think it’s pretty cool.
