Hi Angie. All of right angle weave is just a series of circles, in this case they're circles of 6 beads. You will notice when you get to step 5, because you'll already have half the circle made. When you finish off that circle, it's time to start the next row. You don't really need to worry too much about the count.

this is really confusing because i lose count and you say another circle of 6 beads, not the 2nd or third or whatever number set of beads... thats a downder right there.
