The double wrap/drop on the next row stitch will create a drop stitch--an elongated stitch or strand. You're not adding any rows here, just a decorative stitch.

Here is another source to check it out.

To create the curve in the top, I think you're referring to short row shaping, which involves a different kind of wrap and turn technique.
