You are now going to repeat Step One. That is, you are going to put strands from back to front in the same holes that you did in Step One. The only difference is that you will position each strand so that it lies to the right of the strand already in that hole. Don't worry if the new strands won't stay to the right and tend to overlap a little. This will be corrected later.
As a general rule, it is best not to lay double strands over the short strands at the left and right sides. You can do it if you
like, but it may cause some crowding during the later weaving.
