Stumped by reverse crochet

Hi, all,

I was making a hat this evening and I got to the point where I was supposed to be doing reverse crochet for a row. I thought I understood what I was doing--I had to do it in the front loop only; I didn't turn and I did what would be a single crochet, but in the front loop. It felt very strange to go through that motion, but I did get a fairly nice finished edge. Now I'm supposed to go back and crochet in that going the other way!? How can I do that? I can't even figure out where the hook is supposed to go. (The other thing complicating this is that I'm not using a nice smooth worsted weight. This wool yarn has a thick section, and then a very thin section, so it's not the same thickness all along its length.)

Can anyone give me some advice?

Thanks much!
