with yarn in back
I am knitting a baby blanket and am stuck. My pattern says to WYB slip 3 sts as if to purl, WYF slip same 3 sts back onto left needle, WYB knit same 3 sts. So is WYB is with yarn in back - isn't that where it is in normal knitting? The with yarn in front would be where you have the yarn when you purl? Then with yarn in back knit same 3 stitches. It sounds simple but I keep getting hung up.

Yes, keep the yarn to the back, slip the 3 sts to the right needle, move the yarn to the front and slip them back to the left needle and move the yarn to the back to knit them. This will wrap the yarn around those 3 stitches before they're knit.
