Step 1: With R needle tip, enter into two stitches on L needle as if to K2tog.
Step 2: Wrap working yarn counter-clockwise around both needle tips.

Step 3: Then wrap yarn once more around the R needle (as a regular knit stitch).

Step 4: Pull the loop through as when working a knit stitch.
Step 5: To return to the origin stitch count, on the WS (working any selvedge stitches at the beginning and end of the row as instructed), knit into the first double wrapped eyelet from the row below, bring yarn forward, yarn over, *knit into the next double wrapped eyelet, bring yarn forward, yarn over* until the original stitch count is achieved.
