What is the purpose of a wrap stitch in knitting?

How do you get a wrap stitch?

Step 1: Slightly turn your work so you can see the wrap from the front. Insert your right hand needle into the wrap from front to back as if you were going to purl it. Step 2: Place the wrap up on your left hand needle. Step 3: The two stitches are now up on the left hand needle ready to work.

What does turn in knitting mean?

To turn, you literally stop in the middle of the row, turn your needles and start knitting in the opposite direction. This leaves a gap in the stitches. When turning sock heels, you will knit the stitch before the gap and the one after it together, eliminating any hole in the finished piece.
