I was working on a pattern and the above was in the directions.
I tried all ways, finally I used kib, k, k bar. Is that the way to do it?
I'm sort of an experimenter and self taught. This was a new one for me.

Hi, it is not clear to me what the directions are saying, is it knitting three st into one st(dec. k3tog) or making 3 st out of one ( 2 st inc)? Did I make any sense??

There are a number of ways to make three stitches in one stitch. You can knit, purl, and knit in the same stitch, knit into the front, back and front of the same stitch, or knit, yo, knit in the same stitch. There are various videos on YouTube that illustrate different variations of these stitches.

Hi,
pattern I'm using at the moment has a twisted mock cable up it and 1 row of pattern reads - slip needle into next 3 stitches as (knit 3 tog) but don't slip it off needle until you've actually knit 1/purled 1/ knit 1 into same stitch. thus giving the effect of knitting three together - but still ending up with three stitches on needle. Hope you can understand this.
Cheers

Usually its, k1, p1, k1 all into the same st.

Or else k1, yo,k1 into the same st.

Sometimes it's k1 into the front, k1 into the back loop of same st., k1 again into front of same st.

Hi! I am new to this... but I was reading some of the replys on this question there is a really easy (& pretty) way to make one stitch out of three! Here goes... slip first 2 sts, knitwise onto right needle, knit next st, leave on left needle, slip 2 sts back over it, then move onto right needle. It places the middle st right smack in the middle of the decrease and looks very nice. Good Luck! LA

Oops! I forgot to say that when you slip the first 2 sts, they will twist, this is intended. they will untwist when you slip them back.
Good Luck!

To make 3 stitches from one stitch, I would knit in the stitch, then purl in the stitch and then knit in the stitch.

k1 yo k1 sounds the easiest way to make 3 stitches out of one stitch - will have to try that!
