Do you have a name and link for the pattern? You are literally making all three stitches in the one stitch. When you make the first stitch don't slide it off like you normally do. Just bring the yarn forward and purl into the stitch, then move the yarn back and knit again into the stitch. Now slide them off. Here's a few of that stitch - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkEWdNkR6zo __________________ Jan When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it. NEW!

A bobble would have you work over the new sts for a couple rows then decrease down to one. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

Ahh I see. I'm not a bobble fan myself, but I knew they were multiple stitches worked into one so I assumed. Yeah...I know.
