Please let me know if you have any questions. There are two slips of the stitch in the pattern, one purlwise (bring yarn to front, slip the stitch from the left hand needle to the right hand needle as if you were going to purl the stitch, but you don't actually purl, just slip) and then one knitwise (bring the yarn to the back, slip the stitch from the left hand needle to the right hand needle as if you were going to knit the stitch, but don't actually knit, just slip again). Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.
