I believe it's a centered double increase. You knit one, and without dropping the stitch off the needle, do a yarn over, and then knit one again in the same stitch.

its from the book Greetings from Knit Cafe and i think its a decrease??????? but is it in the videos anywhere on this web site?

Well, if you're going to knit twice into the same stitch with a yarn over in between, you'd end up with two more stitches than you started. I'm pretty sure chevron patterns require both increases and decreases so it's not surprising that it would contain an increase. I think you think it's harder than it really is. Just give it a try. ;)

Yes, it'a an increase and it's really not that hard to do. Just try it out; use scrap yarn to practice with for a bit before you try it in your pattern.
