A note from the author about 'SPACE':

Instead of putting your hook under one or two loops, insert your hook under all 3 loops of the stitch.

By doing this you are actually inserting your hook into a "space" rather than a stitch.
As you stitch along you will soon see that this "space" is between two stitches of the previous row.

This method makes it very easy when using bulky yarns.
