Wrap and turn is a method for short rows. This is a shaping technique used in garments, socks, toys, you name it. There are other methods for short rows such as German and Japanese. I prefer German short rows as they seem to be most straight forward to me. Whether you are knitting in a row or a round, short rows are always knit back and forth.

To knit short rows, knit to a point where you will be turning, bring the yarn to the front of the work and slip a stitch purlwise onto right hand needle, bring the yarn to the back of the work and move the slipped stitch back to the left hand needle, turn your work to purl. Purl to a point where you will be turning, bring the yarn to the back of the work and slip a stitch purlwise onto right hand needle, bring the yarn to the front of the work and move the slipped stitch back to the left hand needle, turn your work to knit. Repeat these steps until you are done with the short rows as per your pattern.
The wrap around a stitch will show up if not knit/purled through. This could be used as a design feature. However, if you want the fabric to appear smooth you will have to pick up and work those wraps together with the slipped stitches.
On the knit row, knit up to the wrapped/slipped stitch, slip it purlwise, with the left hand needle pick up the wrap, move the slipped stitch back to the left hand needle, pass the wrap over the slipped stitch and onto the right hand needle, insert the left hand needle into the wrap stitch front front to back, move it back to the left hand needle and knit both stitches together.
On the purl row, purl up to the wrapped/slipped stitch, slip it purlwise, with the left hand needle pick up the wrap, move the slipped stitch back to the left hand needle, pass the wrap over the slipped stitch and drop it (it will not unravel your work), slip the stitch purlwise to the right hand needle, with the left hand needle pick up the wrap inserting the needle from front to back, move the slipped stitch back onto the left hand needle and purl the both together.
