Can anyone help me figure this pattern out?

Row 1: Slip one (as if to purl), knit to end.
Row 2: Slip one (as if to purl), increase one
purlwise (by picking up the stitch below the
one on your left needle and purling it), purl 4,
increase one purlwise (same way), purl 1. (8
stitches total)

Slip 1 is just moving the st from the L to R needle without working into it; ‘as if to purl’ means insert the R needle as if you were going to purl it, but you just move it.

The increase is like the KRL which is found on the Increases page, you just do it as a purl. Insert the needle into the purl bump below the st on the L needle and purl into it.
