Row 3: purl
Row 4: *(p1, wyib sl1), repeat from *

Maybe what's tripping you up is the slip sts. They're slipped as if to purl, which means you insert the needle as if to purl, however the yarn is in back. So you have to p1, move the yarn back, slip, move the yarn to front, p1, and so on. It would be just like doing p1 k1 except you slip the st instead of knitting it.
I want to do these now so I've been trying to get the pattern right. I move the yarn forward to purl, back to slip, it still doesn't look right. I'm trying it flat now and knitting R 1 & R3 to give purls on the RS but it still looks odd. I get ridges, yes, but the pictures show a sort of diamond effect that isn't there for me.
