photo of close up of fabric from pattern
If this works, here is a photo from the pattern. Not sure if that's helpful.

The pattern link and the picture are a big help. Now we can see that the slip stitch is part of a decrease.
"Row 2: *k1, p1, k1, yo, k1, sl1, p2,
pass slipped stitch over the p2*.."
In that cast, leave the yarn in back, slip knitwise, bring the yarn to the front to purl and then pass slipped st over the p2.
"Row 4 *k1, p1, sl1, k2, pass slipped
stitch over the k2, p1, yo, p1* ..."
I'd do something similar on row 4, k1, p1, bring the yarn to the back, slip knitwise, k2, and then pass slipped st over the k2.
You could try out the pattern on a 9st swatch to see what it will look like rather than the whole panel if you like.

Thank you! So if I keep yarn to back for slips in both rows 2 and 4, the bars from both rows will be on the same side of the fabric, (the ws) right?

Thanks for answering. I was doing row 2 this way, but I don't think I was doing row 4 that way.

Another thing that is making me nervous is that I'm getting to the end of the row and not completing the pattern, (but doing the ending k1,p1 when there are 2 stitches left, like it says.) I hope it's designed so that I'm not supposed to complete the line at the end and that I haven't made a mistake some where along the line...It's like cooking without tasting. I feel like I'm just "hoping" it all comes out ok, and not really feeling sure that what I'm looking at is correct other than the obvious, is the # of active stitches correct, etc.

You won't get the same kind of bar that slipping a stitch gives becasue this is part of a decrease so it's not so much of a concern.
Did you cast on 128sts to work this pattern is two sections, back and forth? If so, you should be able to complete the pattern repeat. The multiple is 7sts + 2 so that's 18 repeats of 7 sts and then the k1p1.
Name the sts one by one to make sure you haven't missed something and count to make sure you have 128,

Yes, 128, back and forth. I was afraid you were going to say that. Ok so I guess I'll start over again. 3rd time? 4th time? This is why I gave up on learning to knit the last time, LOL!

Thank you, at least I won't keep blundering on with this piece.

It is frustrating at the beginning and these set up rows are often a problem. Certainly I've had my arguments with that first few rows myself.
Before you rip it out, see if you can spot the error. it may save repeating it.

The really poor thing is that I thought it was all going ok, so I've been pulling my lifeline threads and only leaving in the last 1. Grrr.

Hello craff - Just about anyone who reads your post has been there I really hope you can push through this one, you would be so happy if you did. Knitting can be such a rewarding experience.

I agree with salmon, if you can spot the error, you may be able to avoid ripping the whole thing out.

At any point when you were knitting this, were you able to complete the pattern and then have the two stitches at the end? If so, this would most likely be where you need to rip back to.

Using stitch markers would be very helpful, I would say perhaps every 3 to 4 pattern repeats. This way, if you make a mistake it would be pretty easy to catch it, and you wouldn't need to go very far back to repair it.

Hope this helps.

Claire, thanks for the suggestions, I'll try that. Besides, gives me an excuse to order the pretty stitch markers I found on Etsy. I could just make some more, but I'm too lazy, LOL!
