How to make 6 led blink in a repeatedly sequence ? Answered

Hello everyone, I am a novice in all  of this and  I really need help. What  I want to do is a car flasher with six blinking led where the led will blink one after another repeatedly until I turn the flasher off. I hope I explain it clear because unfortunately, (forgive me please) my English is bad. I would like to know what hardware do I need and the instruction for make it working. I don't know a lot about this but I learning fast and I think ( I hope) what I want to do should not be very complicated.

Thank you for your time.
PS: In the picture that I am posting as a example, I want the orange led blink in a repeatedly sequence from left to right as a right tail light car flasher.

I believe what you are looking for is called a "led chaser" and google will give you plenty of examples (from basic analogue circuits to microcontrollers) - including full build instructions

Yes , what I looking for is a single direction that always start over ex: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ,6 - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - 1, 2, 3 etc... See what I mean.

Yes, that is "LED chaser" as i mentioned before

Thank you mh76dk for the tip. I didn't know the name of what I was looking for was led chaser. It will be more easy to make some research about plans and stuff like that now that I have the right name.
Thank you and have a good weekend.

Ok, the led chaser video i found is more programmable than a basic one, but the first few seconds is what i mean ;-)

It is more like this video but on 12 V. In the video I can see the parts he used but he don't show any plan and I don't know where to buy the board or how to connect everything together. I should need the circuit board or the plan and if it is possible a list of the part. We are almost there guys! lol
Thank you for the help.

I can not be sure since i am not the poster, but that one is a Larson type, it moves back and forth continously (bi-directional as the instructable calls it), what he seems to be asking is one that moves only one direction and then starts over (single direction) - kinda like pointing in the direction he is turning.
