*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?
I know that you posted this quite a while back, but I think I may have found your stitch:

The difference being that Row 1 (right side) and Row 3 are knitted, Rows 2 and 4 are *purl 2 together, do not slip from needle, purl the first stitch again, and slip both stitches from needle together.* Although I cannot see the purple photo clearly, they appear to be the same stitch.
