New Member - Help with Elongated Stitch

My name is Julie and I am a new knitter. I bought a book and followed the patterns. Most of the time I did OK. I do need help with a stitch I want to use for a scarf. The site calls it the elongated stitch. The yarn is wrapped 3 or 4 times on the needle before being pulled through.
