I'd like to try to clarify, but what do the directions tell you to do? In general, I think that an eyelet is made with a YO. :?

Welcome hannsgram!

If the pattern doesn't say, just do what ekgheiy says. YO, followed by k2tog will work. (YO will make the eyelet, but it's also an increase, so you follow with a decrease to keep the stitch number the same).

Those instructions are complex, but well written. Where are you confused exactly? The "twisted loops" sound like backward loop cast-on, or M1T or M1A, as shown on the increase page.
