I understand the first part of the single crochet foundation stitch, but I don't understand where to place my hook to make the second stitch --- described as "insert hook in last base ch completed." Where is that? Thanks.

Base Ch/Sc
Start with a slip knot, ch 2, insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, draw up a loop, yo, draw through 1 loop, yo and draw through 2 loops – 1 single crochet with its own chain at bottom. Work next stitch under loops of that chain. Insert hook under 2 loops at bottom of the previous stitch, draw up a loop, yo and draw through 1 loop, yo and draw through 2 loops. Repeat for length of foundation.
Note This stitch creates a foundation with more stretch than usual.
