confusing directions
I'm trying a pattern out of the Stich 'n Bitch Nation book and I'm confused about one of the directions. It says:

sl right needle through next 3 sts as if to k, k through the front, back and front of all 2 sts

I don't get the front, back, front bit. How does that work??

You knit through all 3 (I'm assuming that the 2 in your post is an error), but don't slide anything off the needle. Then knit through the back loops of those same stitches and again, don't slide them off. Finally, knit into the front loop again and then slide the whole mess off.
