Cast on 16 sts. K 1st row. In the 2nd row, K 10 sts and turn (leaving 6 sts "unknitted"). 3rd row K (this row is shorter now). Repeat these 3 rows 3 times.
Does this mean the tail should be 12 rows? Those three rows, and then the three rows repeated three times? Or is it 9 rows, with the first three counting as the first "repeat?"
Also, to other people who've knit this, was anyone else's tail kind of funny-looking? Their knitted kitty's tail, I mean. Because mine is coming out sort of funny-looking, and I think it's just because my tension isn't even enough (it's fine on the body and the head), but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else I could be doing wrong on the tail.
