What does make a double stitch mean in knitting?

The stitch will start to look distorted while the yarn is pulled to the back, creating two loops out of the same stitch. In this way a “double- stitch” (ds) has been made out of the slipped stitch. While keeping a tight tension, pass the yarn between the needles to the front of the work again.
