(K1,yfwd,K1) in one stitch is an increase.

knit into the stitch, but don't slide it off the needle. Bring the yarn forward between the tips, and with the yarn still in front, knit the stitch again, then slide it off. You'll have 3 stitches where you had 1.

For the next instruction,

k1, (K1,yfwd,K1), k1 (another increase in the center stitch as above). You'll have 5 at this point.

[(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.

Thank you for the quick answer I think I have it now.
