Could you clarify the stitch on the 4th row of the pattern repeat. Do you slip stitch with yarn in back and then slip stitch with yarn in front and then purl 1?

You slip the next stitch with the yarn in back knitwise, then move the yarn to the front for the purl stitch, you are not slipping two stitches in a row.

In rows three and four of pattern should slipped stitches be as if to knit or to purl? Thanks.

It depends since they have changed the abbreviations for this pattern to be-Sl st = Slip stitch, this would be purlwise and Sl1 = Slip next stitch knitwise. The abbreviations for this pattern can be found on the pattern for this hat on the yarnspirations website, but they have not been copied to this website. The pattern name is his tri-color hat.
