When you crochet amigurumi, most instructions begin, “Ch 2. Sc 6 in 2nd ch from hook”.
Where is the 2nd chain?
Getting this instruction right is particularly important if you’re using the sloppy slip knot technique for starting, since crocheting your 6 stitches in the wrong chain will prevent your hole from closing.
I like to picture stitches as little Vs, laying on their side:
Do you see the 2nd chain now?
Now, stick your hook in that one!
