Your pattern has them listed before the directions:

Abbreviations and Techniques

sl1 -- Slip 1 Stitch -- Slip one stitch from the left needle to the right needle. When slipping the stitch, insert the right needle into the loop as if to purl.
yf -- Yarn Front -- Move the yarn to the front, taking it between the needles.
yb -- Yarn Back -- Move the yarn to the back, taking it between the needles.
bYO -- Backward Yarn Over -- take the yarn to the back between the needles and then over the right needle to bring the yarn to the front.
Correct Mount -- The next stitch on the left needle is "backwards", the left leg of the loop is in front of the needle instead of the right leg. Use the right needle to turn this stitch around, leaving it on the left needle.
k2tog -- knit 2 stitches together.
WS -- Wrong Side
RS -- Right Side

Yes it does, but I don't understand them. Like the second row was k1, yf, sl, yb, I don't get it when you have 13 sts. what happens to the remaining ones on the needle when I an yf or yb, or byo?

I see. Sorry. ;)

You don't do all the stitches on the row. Just turn when it says turn and leave those stitches on the needle. You're doing short rows. That's how you get the curly effect.

Thank you, :happydance:

Can you also give me info on the BYO abbreviation? It wasn't specific enough...

Also on the turn work, I'm knitting with my right hand today, so I turn so the yarn will be on my left side?

It's just as if you were done with the row. The working yarn will be at the tip of your left needle. Just work from there.

BYO-You bring the yarn back between the needles as if you were switching to purl from knit. Then bring it over the top of the right needle.

I've gotten up to row three again and I still don't see anything diferent. The funny thing is, am I suppose to have extra sts when I do the byo? Because row 18 has k2tog 8 times and end with K1.

Yes the byo is supposed to create an extra stitch.
