This is a quick little clip on a specialized increase. It's usually used for 3 or more stitches and always an odd number.
Essentially, one knits into a stitch but doesn't pull it off the needle, then one makes a yarn over and knits into the same stitch again. This can continue with another yarn over and another knit stitch as many times as necessary as long as it ends with a knit stitch. It can also be worked purlwise, of course.
It's similar to alternating knits and purls into the same stitch except that a kpk for the same number of stitches is more bulky. Also, kpk can end with any number of stitches since every one is anchored.
