K3 in center stitch...?

Anyone know what that means? Heres the pattern:

Cast on 9 sts.
Rows 1-3: K1, YO, K across to center stitch, K3 in center stitch, K across til 1 loop remains on left needle, YO, k1, turn.

Thanks in advance!

I would take that to mean I should knit in the front of the stitch, the back of the stitch and the front again before taking the center stitch off the left needle. It is a double increase. Does that make sense?

oooh, ok. I don’t know how to do that, lol, but it seems like its easy to learn. Thanks!!! :muah:

…i attempted it, but a HUGE loop appeared out of nowhere… I found the vid on this site on how to knit in front and back, but is there a difference if you have to knit in front again?

I’m not sure why you would get a loop but it is basically like doing the knit front and back, but doing another stitch in the front. I grabbed some yarn and needles and did the pattern as you wrote it in your first message. The first pic shows the first stitch knit into the front, the second one shows the stitch knit into the back, the 3rd one shows the second knit into the front, the 4th pic shows what it looked like when I took the stitch off the left needle after knitting the 3 into it. Then I took a pic of the completed 3 rows, and then a close up of the increase area in the the middle. I hope these help a bit!

I just worked a pattern like this and what you do is knit into the stitch on the left needle and then dont slipint off the left until you’ve knit into that stitch three times. Does that make sense?

Oh wow! You’re so sweet to take the time to do that! Thank you so much!! :muah:

I’m gonna give it a shot right now, I understand it a lot better. Thanks again!
