Step 3

The last step is a sort of slip stitch. You will understand why in a second.

Yarn over and pull the yarn through the stitch. You now have three loops on your hook.
At this point, you have to grab again that same loop that you just passed through the stitch and keep pulling it through the other two loops on your hook, like indicated by the arrow in the image below.
