I'm still pretty new to knitting but I"ve went out on a limb and decided to follow a pattern for a dishcloth. It has a very pretty stitch that I've finally figured out but when it tells me to ( k3tog tbl) I'm having a hard time. I think I understand what to do but when I place my right need into the back of the 3 stitches I'm supposed to knit it is very tight and then it is very difficult to pull the yarn through without it slipping off even though I have tried to knit the previous row loosely. On the previous row I have to [k1 yo k1] all in the same stitch --- these are the stitches I then have to knit together. I hope this makes since. Is there an easy method to get this to work faster?
