Here are the instructions (copied and pasted):

Leg Pattern: Note that the stitch count varies as the yarnover increase is worked on Rnd 2 and the decrease is not worked until Rnd 4.
Rnd 1: *K1tbl, p1, k2, p1; rep from *
Rnd 2: *Klb, p1, k1, yo, k1, pl; rep from *
Rnd 3: *K1tbl, p1, k3, p1; rep from *
Rnd 4: *K1tbl, p1, k3, with the tip of the left needle, lift the third stitch on the right needle over the first two sts and drop it off, pl; rep from*

It's curious to me that "Klb" appears in Rnd 2 only; all other rows use "K1tbl" = knit 1 through back loop. Is there possibly a typo in Rnd 2, that it should be "K1tbl" also? Have you tried this? Did it work out as expected?

And yes, at the end of the pattern repeat in Rnds 2 and 4, it should read "p1" instead of "pl".
