It sounds pretty self explanatory. Without seeing more of the pattern it looks as if you would count across the stitches on the left needle and after the 7th stitch you would insert your right needle tip between the 7th snf 8th loop on your left needle and draw your yarn through far enough to slip it on the tip of your left needle and then knit that loop with the stitch next to it and then work the other 6 stitches as directed. It looks as if it's going to make a sort of swag of yarn across the 7 stitches.

Those are the sts that have the other stitch pulled over them. So you k1, slip 1, k2tog, pass the slipped st over and knit 2.

Begin with a yo and then reach over to right after the 7th stitch on the left hand needle and between that st and the 8th stitch insert the RH needle tip, then yarn around and pull up a stitch loop, stretch that stitch loop out until you can put it up onto the LH needle. (Be careful that you don't lose the yo you did to begin with.) Now knit the stitch loop you just added to the LH needle together with the next regular st loop.

Now you have 6 more(the first 2 you knit together make the first 1) stitches that are "wrapped" on both front and back by 2 strands of yarn kind of garlanded across on each side of the fabric. Those are the stitches it is indicating when it says "then work wrapped sts as follows." They are the next in line to be worked on your LH needle. Just do what it says to them K1, then sl1 knitwise, then k2tog then pass the slipped stitch over the resulting loop from the k2tog, then knit the last 2 of them.

You end up with your yarn over and then 5 stitches wrapped on front and back with the two garlands. I say garlands. If you have a picture use it to determine the type of tension you want on the front and back strands. Are they pulled tight and make a pucker, or are they loose and swag-like? Try to imitate the look in the picture.
