Rewrite on explanation. My abbreviation were out of order perhaps.
I probably didn't use the right abbreviations. Here is what I do for the 4 rounds.

Round 1 purl all the way around. For round 2, move yarn to back, slip
one stitch as if to purl (purl wise), move yarn to front, purl one.
Then repeat this 2-step sequence eg. move yarn to back, slip 1 purl
wise, move yarn to front, purl 1. Continue this 2-step sequence to end
of round. Round 3 is a purl round. Round 4, purl the first stitch,
move yarn to back, slip one stitch purl wise, move yarn to front, purl
one, move yarn to back, slip one stitch purl wise, move yarn to front,
purl one. Continue 2-step pattern to end. Round 1 of second set of 4
rounds is a purl round.

Rounds 2 and 4 have the slipped stitches. Round 2 starts with a
slipped stitch. Round 4 starts with a purl stitch then next stitch is
slipped. You will see on the inside/back of your knit fabric a strand
of yarn behind each slipped stitch. Those little strands can help you
determine where you are in the pattern should you have to put your
work down in the middle of the pattern work.

I hope this explanation helps clarify what I was trying to say. If
not, give me another shout out.
