Can't figure out how to do this.
Previous row is K13.
Next row:
Instructions say: K1 swt, (swt = slip one stitch pwise, wrap yarn around slipped stitch, (if the stitch is slipped how do you wrap yarn around it?)turn work, slip stitch pwise back to right hand needle.) k1 turn k2 (picking up wrap as you go) (What is the wrap?) swt, k2 turn, k3 turn, continue in this manner increasing by one stitch until all stitches have been worked.
I am completely lost.
If you understand these instructions please HELP...

That's also known as a wrap and turn which is used to make short rows, and there's a video for it on the Adv Techniques page. There's also a tutorial at knitty. The wrap is the yarn that ends up being around the st you slipped. If you practice it following the video or the pictures in the tutorial, you'll see how it works.

Thank you [b]soooooo very MUCH! It's a whole lot easier with these directions. My brain just wouldn't wrap (ha ha) around it.
Again Thanks
