Ohhh okay. Work "3 inches" means to knit till you have added 3 more inches in length not width. So knit those 60 stitches back and forth till you've added that length. To make it easier to measure you can place a marker (safety pin or whatever) on the knitting now and then you'll know where to measure from.
