When I'm doing row 2, the two yo sts look different from all the others. Are those the purls? My pattern isn't looking right, so any other tips for this type of pattern that a newbie knitter might need would be appreciated.
A knit stitch on one side produces a purl stitch on the other side, and vice versa. So anything that was knit on your first row produced purls on the reverse side and so on the second row you will purl those stitches. Does that make any sense, it is difficult to describe. Your yarn overs on the first row count as knit stitches, in my opinion (although it's not specific about that) and so will be purled on the next row.
I agree with knitqueen. It looks like this particular row would be all purled.
When they say k the knits and purl the purls, it's as the face you. So if there's a purl on your needle looking at you (which would have been knit on the previous row), purl it. If there's a knit there, knit it.
