Knit to within three stitches?
So my current knitting project is a small plush elephant. The pattern I found online has been really simple and easy to follow up until this one part. It says,
"SHORT-ROW SHAPING THE HEAD: Decreases and angling are achieved in a manner similar to turning the heel of a sock. Knit to within 3 stitches of the end of the first row of the head. WITHOUT knitting the last 3 stitches, turn and knit to within 3 stitches of the other end. WITHOUT working the last 3 stitches, turn. (Short rows are created across the middle 14 stitches with a gap between them and a set of 3 stitches at each end.)"
If someone could explain what this means in an easy to understand way, that would just be fantastic. Also, if you could also explain how to do this, that would be even more fantastic.
