[(K1,yfwd,K1)all in st. (3 sts)
(K1(K1,yfwd,K1)in next st.K1. (5sts)

Into one st on the needle knit 1 and without slipping it from the left needle, bring the yarn forward between the needles, then to the back over the right needle and knit again into the st on the left needle and now slip it off the left needle. That makes 3 sts on the right needle. Now turn the work so that you have the sts on the needle in your left hand. For the next row, knit one st as usual, repeat the previous instructions for k1, yfwd, k1, then knit the next st as usual. There'll be 5sts total on the right hand needle.
