Do your knit 2 together, then bring the yarn to the front between the needles (just like you would if you were going to purl), then bring the yarn over the right needle, returning it to the back, and then bring the yarn to the front again ready to purl, making sure that the new 'loop' stays on the right needle.

It sounds like a lot of steps but really it's just wrapping the yarn once around the right needle from front to back and then returning the yarn to the purl position.
