this is a funky stitch. I will have to try it with some yarn if I want to make better words up for it.

But basically you are working stitch 2 through stitch one, then work stitch one and then take them off the needle.

right needle goes through stitch one, grabs the front leg of stitch 2 and knits it. Nothing leaves the left needle. But one stitch is made on the right needle.
then you take your right needle out of the stitches on the left (but leave those original stitches there). Put the right needle back into the first stitch on the left needle and knit that through the back loop.

NOW take stitches 1 and 2 off the left needle. Keep doing this thing over.

I have not tried it out. Just different words for what is written there.
