You slip the stitch from your left needle to your right without knitting it. "As if to knit" means to put your right needle into the stitch just like you would if you were going to knit (from the left of the stitch), but instead of knitting it just slip it off the left needle to the right needle. This twists the stitch as you're slipping to the right needle -- as opposed to slipping as if to purl which would be to insert the needle from the right and just moving the stitch over.

Hope this helps.
