Don't understand pattern

I was given a pattern for a hat that my mom has asked me to knit for her. I don’t understand one part of the pattern. If someone could please help me understand what it is asking. The pattern reads as follows: K1,*skip next st, K next st, K skipped st (twist), P2, sl next 3 onto cable needle. It continues on but the part I don’t understand is the twist part. Can someone please explain?

Okay this will make a twisted stitch or mini cable. K1, now knit into the 2nd st on the left needle, leave it on the needle and knit into the first st you skipped over. If it’s easier for you to do a couple times as a cable, you’d slip the first st on a holder, hold in front, knit the 2nd st, then knit the first st off the holder.
