At the beginning of the video the fabric is already hooped with the center crosshair in the middle of the hoop. The video shows how to line the needle up with the center crosshair. The video then shows how to find the first stitch before you actually hoop it. This is in reverse order because you should find the first stitch and mark your grid and then hoop the fabric with the marker pointing to the center crosshair. It's a little bit out of order still works.
