I believe it means you bring the yarn to the front as if to purl. Then knit two [thus creating an extra stitch before the knit two]. Then just slip the yarn forward over the knit 2. Does that make sense?

TheBon has it right... here's a definition I found online.  It sounds similar to a yarn over.  The extra stitch that you'll create is then slipped off the needles over the two knit stitches.


This is used when the yarn is already at the front of the work but would normally be taken to the back before performing the next stitch.  e.g. if a Purl stitch has just been done and the next stitch is to be knitted.  By leaving the yarn at the front but knitting the next stitch a loop or hole will be made.

Hope that was helpful
