You're doing short row shaping, where you work only the center stitches. If you just turned your work and went back the other way, you'd leave a hole. Wrapping the stitch prevents this.
If you follow the directions step by step, you'll be ok. Amy has video on w & t in the Advanced section under Short Row with Wrap.
