This is so funny. I just saw something very similar on Knitty Gritty just today! It wasn't exact.. but similar.

When it asks you to wrap the yarn around the needle two times, think of them as yarn overs in the middle of a knit stitch. Insert the needle and knit the stitch, but before completing the knit, wrap the yarn around the needle one more time so there are two loops on your right needle, then complete the knit stitch.

On your next row, slip the stitch and drop the extra wraps off the left needle. This turns the two wraps into one elongated stitch. Slip three stitches like this, move them back to the left needle and k1, p1, k1 in all three stitches together (insert your right needle into all three long stitches as if you were going to k3tog, but k1, p1, k1 in them instead.)

Does this help? It's not easy to explain. :??
