Ugh.....I still could not get it lol. When I worked the wrapped stitch and turned the work my yarn was coming from the left needle. I slipped a stitch like the pattern said and tried going on from there but had lots of gaps and tried to back out of my work and then really made a mess. I had to undo it! Im going to have to do more practice of this I think before doing it on a project. Thank you for all your help though. I really appreciate it. Goodnite all!

This might be the pattern.

Did you see the errata which may or may not be corrected in your version of the pattern depending on when you bought it? I don't know whether it applies to the placement of the W&Ts but you might check.
If you're using a fuzzy yarn for this, you could forget the wrap stitch and just do the turn. With a smooth yarn this will leave a small hole but with something fuzzy, you'll never see it.
As an alternative, try the German short rows that GrumpyGramma linked to in post #2. It's a very nice technique for short rows. There's no wrap and turn but you're still adding the extra rows into the knit piece.

Yes the yarn will be coming off the left needle when you turn like it does every time you turn at the end of a full row too. Then when you slip the first stitch to the R needle the yarn is on that stitch, on the R needle. But with the seed stitch, you might be able to skip the wrap and just turn it; when you knit the slip stitch later it serves to cover up the gap.

Try this video. I like how Cat refers to a wrapped stitch like a woman wearing a necklace who lifts it over her hair. Hey, it works.
