Hi guys! I've been lurking Craftster for awhile and I finally taught myself how to knit! I've been trying out this pattern

http://mochimochiland.com/2010/06/free-pattern-baby-gators/

And I have a few questions:

1. What does  "Rnd 8: [Kfb, k1] 3 times (9 sts). Place marker." mean? Since there are 18 stitches divided across 3 needles, do I just do that for one needle and knit stitch the rest?

2. How do I get little tail as shown in the link? When I tried making this pattern, I ended up with an open cone... Am I supposed to sew that end shut? I'm so confused!!

Thank you for helping me out, I really appreciate it!

You don't start with 18 sts, there should only be 6 sts cast on and put on 3 needles - 2 for each one. After this round you'll have 9 sts.
If you have the right number of sts, the tail will be closed.

We all overlook something in patterns sometimes, no matter how long we've been knitting, so don't feel that bad.
