K4 -- knit 4 stitches

YF --move the yarn to the front of your work, as if you were going to purl (but don't purl)

Slip 1 -- slip one stitch from the left needle to the right needle, without knitting it

YB -- move the yarn back to the back of your work

K5 -- knit 5 stitches

...and so on. Does that make more sense?

It's called a stranded or wrapped stitch. There is a whole sock pattern created on this technique at Knitty. It's called Caruso "because the stitch is stranded." I have yarn on the way to make these socks and can't wait!
