(P1,pull out 2nd st on left handed needle to back of work and k,then k 1st st dropping sts off needle,P1) to end
This sounds like a kind of ribbing. I think what is saying is to *purl 1 then knit the second stitch from the end of the left hand needle through the back without taking anything off the left needle, then knit the stitch at the beginning of the left hand needle (the one you skipped), then let the two stitches come off the left hand needle. Repeat from the * across the row.

This will make very miniture cables which are like the knit st of the ribbing, and purl stitches between them for the purl st of the ribbing.
