Help with pattern directions
I'm making a baby jester had with three "prongs" with straight needles so I'm making a front and back piece. I never put knits on holders so right now i have the needle, and two holders and I'm stuck. I did purl across the center but then I didn't understand if I continued on the center with the K1, ssk, knit to last 3 sts until I got to the end point but what about the two sides for the remaining hat points. Am I knitting each one of the jester points separately or simultaneously? How?
Next row: Knit 10 (11, 12) sts, place on holder. Knit next 9 (11, 11) sts, turn.
Place rem 10 (11, 12) sts on holder.
Purl across center 9 (11, 11) sts.
Next row: K1, ssk, knit to last 3 sts; k2tog, k1.
Next row: Purl.
Continue to rep these two rows until 3 sts rem, k3tog, cut yarn and pull through loop to finish.
Make back the same way.
