Wrap then turn Pattern question
What does this mean? Wrap the next stitch and turn?
It is in the section after please note.
DIRECTIONS
Left Cup
Cast on 8 stitches.
Work in garter stitch for 10 inches (this will be the neck strap).
Switch to stockinette st and, starting with a RS row, increase as follows:

(K1, m1) 3 times, k2, (m1, k1) 3 times. [14 sts]
P 1 row.
Next row: (k2, m1) 6 times, k2. [20 sts]
P across 10 sts, place marker, p to end.

PLEASE NOTE: It is important to read through the next 2 sections thoroughly before continuing.

Short Row Sequence:
*Row 1: with RS facing, work to last 2 sts. Wrap the next st and turn.
Row 2: work to last 2 sts. Wrap the next st and turn.
Row 3: work to last 3 sts. Wrap the next st and turn.
Row 4: work to last 3 sts. Wrap the next st and turn.
Row 5: work to last 4 sts. Wrap the next st and turn.
Row 6: work to last 4 sts. Wrap the next st and turn.
Row 7: work across all sts on left needle, picking up wrapped sts.
Row 8: work across all sts, picking up remaining wrapped sts.
Repeat from * 8 [ 9, 10] times .

AT THE SAME TIME, inc 1 on each side of marker every 4th row 16[18, 20] times. 52[56, 60] sts Place all sts on holder.

Right Cup
Work right cup as for left cup.

Wrap and turn is the method used here for short rows. It's a way of adding extra rows into part of the knitted piece in order to shape it. Here's the video for wrap and turn. You can also do short rows by several other methods but one of the neatest is the German short row which is shown in these videos.
