Welcome to the forum!
These are directions for twisted stitches. Different patterns give different ways to work these. The idea is to knit the sts out of order, a mini cable.

Skip the stitch by leaving it on the left hand needle. Work into the second stitch leaving it on the left needle then work into the first stitch and slip both sts off the left needle. You’ll have 2 new loops (stitches) on the right needle.
