Usually when a pattern gives a name to a stitch, they also tell how to do it. Is this a pattern that is on line so we can see it, or a picture of the finished product?

it's an online one, and i guess it just assumes that you know the stitch?

Ahhhh yes, here it is:
Mock Turkish Stitch:(Multiple of 2 + selvedge)
All rows: Knit 1, *yarn forward to make 1, knit 2 together*, knit 1.

Now, I will leave any additional explaining to Our Ingrid bc she can put knitting into the simplest of terms

When you knit, your yarn is in back, right? For a yarn forward, you'll bring your yarn forward as if you are going to purl. When you do the next stitch, in this case k2tog, your yarn will wrap around your needle and give you the eyelet and an increase at the same time. The extra stitch is offset by the k2tog, so you'll come out even in the end.
