On Row 1, you purl each st and wrap it 2 extra times. So:

Insert needle in st to purl and wrap yarn 3 times before making your purl st. This is for EVERY st.

On Row 2, you slip 4 sts to the right needle, dropping those extra wraps from each st. This makes a very large stitch for each one. Put them back on the left needle. You will then, using those 4 sts, k4tog (leave original 4 sts on left needle, new stitch is on right needle), p4tog (leave original 4 sts on left needle, new stitch is on right needle), k4tog (leave original 4 sts on left needle, new stitch is on right needle), p4tog (drop original 4 sts from needle). So, you still have 4 sts, just with a lot of work going into it.

On Row 3, it's the same as Row 1, EXCEPT the first and last 2 sts do not have extra wraps.

On Row 4, it's the same as Row 2, EXCEPT the first and last 2 sts are just plain knit stitches.
