"Are you supposed to decrease a 1 stitch and then ignore the first stitch of the pattern? (for the first decrease I would ignore the K1, starting the row with slip one stitch purlwise, etc."
Basically, every time you decrease a stitch on the needles, you'll need to decrease a stitch in the written instructions. Sometimes it's just easier to look at the pattern and think backwards (something I do all too often) to where you should begin the row.
