Granny Square Help?

I have made these afghans before, but never actually started the square, as my best friend always started it for me.  Now that we are over 1000 miles away from each other and rarely talk, I need some assistance because I need to make a few of these for some of my friends/family.


My problem is that I can start the beginning, but it ends up getting out of line when I'm starting the second row.  Here is a picture of what I am trying to do.  Sorry ladies, I don't have a picture of what I have actually done. 


Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  : )

Have you already checked out YouTube?  This one seems to be very detailed/slow, so maybe it can help you?

(You can probably skip to part 2 since you already know how to make the ring.)

What directions are you working off of?  I learned to do a granny square a couple of years ago from the Bernat blog's crochet-a-long.  Sometimes you have to skip a stitch where it says to join in order for it to line up correctly.

I'm going to take a pic of what I have done so far - I set it aside because I started working on another project.
