"Little Flowers" stitch pattern
I am going mad trying to figure out this stitch. I am using book #5 from The Stitch Collection, the Specialty stitches.

Rows 1 and 3 are purled, and it is the other two rows that are giving me trouble.

*K2tog, without slipping the stitches from the left needle. Insert the right needle between the two stitches and knit into the first stitch again, slipping both stitches off the left needle.*

I have done this, however as I progress with the rows, it looks nothing like the textured fabric shown in the picture. I end up with a nice smooth fabric. It's actually pretty, but I want the textured fabric pictured.

I have tried purling the first stitch, knitting through the back loop... I cannot get this! I tried to find errata, but just get an error from the link I found. I searched through my other stitch pattern books because this seems familiar to me, but I can't find it to compare instructions. Can anyone help?
