Pass the yarn under the right-hand needle and under the left-hand needle….
… wrap the yarn around your left thumb, forming a loop
Pass the yarn under the left and right-hand needles again…
-… place the right-hand needle on top of the left-hand needle.
Hold the loop with your right thumb, insert the needle into the same stitch again, and knit it.
