And the picture tutorial:
Make sure you have enough stitches on your needles to be divisible by 10. PM and join your knitting.
1. After you place your marker, bring your working yarn forward as if you were going to purl-but don't purl.
2. Slip the next 5 stitches "purlwise" and "wrap" your yarn around those stitches by bringing your yarn to the back of your work as if you were going to knit.
3. Knit the next 5 stitches. In the picture, I've shown only the next stitch knit, but knit 5 :)
4. You will be knitting every other round
5. This is what it will look like before you begin to butterfly your loose strands.
6. Take your right needle and insert it under the loose strands as if to knit
7. And insert the right needle into the next stitch to knit it and the strands together
(I started to get lazy....I stopped numbering my pictures!)
8. Wrap the stitch to knit it
9. (it gets tricky here) Bring your needle with the new stitch on it (the right needle) back down through the loose strands and slip the stitch on the left needle off. If you don't slip that stitch off the left needle, you'll be creating an extra stitch.
10. When you bring your right needle back up, it'll have that beautiful little stitch on it!
See how pretty it is?
