Okay, I am trying to knit a dishcloth.  I was wondering if I am doing this correctly. 

PATTERN: Row 4: K4, slip 1, (K5, slip 1) across to last 4st, K4.

My interpretation is this:
Knit 4
Slip 1(?)  I insert needle as to K but instead of pulling up a knit stitch I slip the stitch from the left needle to right.  Is this correct?
Knit 5
Slip 1
Knit 4 in the last 4 stitches

Wondering if I am doing this correctly.  I am a newbie trying to figure it out.

Sounds perfect to me, except usually when I slip a stitch I do it as if to purl.  But all in all, you have the right idea

Yes, slip that stitch as if you're going to purl it, or it will be twisted on the next row.

Thanks for the advice.  The book I have show 2 ways of slip stitch.  One way for knit and the other for purl.  Going to try it out.  Did not realize about the twist.

If you run into a dec that is slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped st over, you would slip knitwise. Same for a ssk - slip 1, slip 1, knit the 2 sts together.

It sounds as if you are knitting the Ballband dishcloth.  The others are correct; slip the stitch purlwise - this just moves the stitch from the left needle to the right needle.  If you slip a stitch knitwise - then, as they mentioned, the stitch becomes twisted.
