so i got this pattern for a knit afgan and it goes a little something like this...

here's a cluster that the majority of the thing is made of and i have no idea how to do it


P3tog leaving stitches on Left Hand needle, yo, purl same 3 sts tog.


what the heck?

if i purl them together the first time and leave them on the L needle and then yo won't i just be undoing what i just did?  I very confused...i tried looking around sitch dictionaries to see if i could find an explanation...but no luck

can anyone help?

Okay, here's my interpretation. I tried it this way and I ended up with 3 stitches on the right needle.

Insert right needle into 3 stitches purlwise. Purl but don't lift the stitches off. Instead, bring the right needle back around to the front. Now wrap the yarn over the right needle for a yo. Then insert the right needle again into the 3 stitches purlwise. Purl and lift off. That creates 3 new stitches and leaves a rather wrapped-up bunch of 3 purled stitches on the row below.

Does that sound right?

ok so i tried it out according to your interpretation and you were right on!  honestly the stitch is sort of a pain in the butt...so i'm thinking about trying something else due to the size of the blanket i'm making...that's a long time to spend with a pain in the ass stitch! 

maybe i'll give it another shot...just because you were soooo nice to help me and figure the thing out  Cheesy
