The yarn is supposed to pull behind the slipped stitches--you will be creating a handle that looks like two i-cords stuck together.
So knit the 3, put the yarn to the front and slip the next stitches. Turn the work and knit the first three stitches from where the yarn is, bring it forward and slip the last 3. Keep going. You'll see it taking shape.

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
