Need help with short rows!
This is my first pattern, and I'm trying to figure it out (not having much luck) :

....end with RS row.

K 24, YF, sl1, turn. Slipped st is now wrapped.
Sl 1, P 25, YB, sl 1, turn. Slipped st is now wrapped.
Sl1, K 18, YF, sl 1, turn. Slipped st is now wrapped.
Sl 1, P 11, YB, sl 1, turn. Slipped st is now wrapped.
Sl 1, K to end. When you reach a wrapped stitch, knit the wrap and the stitch together.

Okay, a few questions:

1) I'm assuming "end with RS row" means that I've completed the Right Side row, and now it's time to begin working the Wrong side row?

2) When these above short rows come up, I've got 42 sts on my needle - this doesn't add up to me - - do I do this work at the beginning of a row?

3) When it says to "Sl 1" it doesn't mention "as if to K" or "as if to P" - so which should I do?

4) I'm assuming turning means as if to begin a new row - but how does that "wrap" the slipped stitch?

I'm soooo confused! Please - - help!!!!!
