problem understanding a pattern

Hello!

I am somewhat of a beginner when it comes to knitting. I’m a pretty quick learner, but am having a hard time understanding a pattern I found online and neither my “how-to” book or google can provide an answer for me! I’m knitting a baby blanket for a gift, and the pattern as a whole is easy enough. There’s just one part on step 2 that says, “lift the first of the three knitted stich over the last two…” what does this mean and how do I do it??? Please explain in laymans terms…I’m a very visual learner, it takes me longer to learn with written instructions :wink:

Thank you!!!

Welcome to the forum!
It might be like a stitch over stitch bind off but instead of lifting the first stitch on the right needle over the second and off the needle, the first stitch is lifted over the second and third.
It’s not clear from the part you quoted whether that first stitch is dropped off the needle or just rearranged for a subsequent step. Seeing a photo in the pattern will help.
What is the name of the pattern?
