So, what we want to do is you want to hold here and put your nasty finger in here and your thumb holding it down and well you want to chain up three. So what were going to do is chain up three. So one, two and three, so now what's going too happened is that we’re going to be working down, I don’t know if you can really see that. But you have to—we have to work down the slope, okay. So what we need to do is, right where your holding your finger with your thumb because you haven’t let, let it go is wrap you needle around and go into that exact same hole and that’s where that chain originated from. So this is double crochet so you're just going to put it into that hole grab your material and pull it through. And now you’ll have three left on there pull through two and two.
So what we want to do is what we want to make three regular double crochets in a row. So just going into the next stitch pushing it through, pulling at the materials through that hole you'll have three left on board, so pull through two and two. Going into the next stitch pulling it through, pull through two and two, going into the next stitch pulling that through, pulling them through two and two, so we’re actually working our way down, you just can't tell it at this point because we haven’t manipulated the string properly yet, in order to do it and that’s where the next two stitches are going to come in line. And just like the ridge stitch we need to connect the next two together to force it to want to bend up.
So what we do is grab your material going into the next stitch, pushing it through, pulling it through that hole, so now you have three left on board, so you're going to just pull through two only, okay. So what you're going to do is wrap your material around this needle and go into the very next stitch again or into the next stitch, pulling it through, pulling it through the first two only. So now, you got three left on your hook, so its going to—so now you want to join this all together, so what you're going to do is grab your material and pull through all three.
And what that is doing is its causing these two stitches to have the same top, which is causing it to pull together. So this is considered the one side coming down, so now we have to go back up the other direction so we have to create this again in the next two stitches. So what we do is to wrap your needle around going into the next stitch, pulling it through that hole, pulling it through two only and hold on your hook. Okay, wrapping your material around going into that next hole, pulling it through and pulling it through two only. And now you get three left on your hook, so what you're going to do is grab your material and pull through all three and now that has caused it to want to turn up.
You can see that, so now that what we’re going to do is the next three stitches were just going to do a regular double crochet, so stick your needle in pulling it through two and two, going into the next stitch, sticking it in pulling it through and then two and two, and one more time going into the next stitch pulling it through, two and two, so now we’re coming up and see how it’s expanding already. So now, you want to go back down in order to do that the next stitch we have to then stick it in do a regular double crochet pulling it through two and two. In order to get it to go down the other way, we have put extra material into that same hole to cause it to want to bend.
So going into the exact same forward that just came out of, going in, pulling it through two and two, so now you got two stitches that are now in one hole exactly what you need, so now this is the top of the actual chevron before it starts going down the other direction. So in order to cause the other section to go down you have to stick it into the next stitch pulling it through, pulling it through two and two and it cause it to bend down and you have to put another one in the top of the stitch going down the other direction.
See that, so that—so you got two in this one, two in that one which is causing the bend. So the next three stitches will just be regular, double crochet. Okay, so we've just done three in a row, so now the next two have to be at the bottom again. Would you remember how we did that? So we grab our needle around and then the very next stitch we want to join these two stitches together and how to do that? Just go, just go into the next stitch per double crochet pull it through, pull through two only and hold it on your hook, wrapping your material around, going into the next hole, pulling it through and pulling it through two only. Now you got three left on board, so you're going to grab in which you're going to pull through all three, which connected those two together.
So this is the bottom then of it going down, do you see that. So now, you want to join next two together. So pushing it in, pulling it out, pull through two only and the next hole pushing it in, pulling it out, pulling it through two only, so now you have three on your hook. So now you're going to wrap your material pulling through all three and now you’ve just created the bottom of the section that is going now in the up direction. Up, so were almost finished turning a line.
So if you would have had more in your blanket you just keep. And what we've just already shown you what we—what I have already just shown you. So this is the end of our line. So this is the very last stitch so I'm putting in a double crochet and what is really important here is that if you do not put an extra stitch in the end of this. What's going to happen is that your blanket here on the edges will start working their way up on angle like this and not flat. So at the very last one, we just put one in there. We have to put another one in there to stop it just from going in that direction so that it creates a flat edge, you can see now. So that would be the end of your second line. Okay, so the way it is already started and now we just have to maintain it, now, for the rest of your project.
