Please..when asking questions please be more specific.

There are many patterns that use multiple colors using various methods. What exactly are you looking for?

First off, they're not strings, they would be strands of yarn. And you don't need a special pattern necessarily if you want to knit with 3 held together, just treat them as if they were 1 strand and knit on huge needles. If you mean 3 different colors and want to knit a few rows with each color, that's stripes. Knitting a picture with 3 colors is called intarsia, and knitting a piece with 3 colors in a pattern - a few stitches with one color, the next sts with another color - is called stranded or fair isle. So there could be at least 6 answers to your question without more information. If you have a picture of what you mean, a link to it would be helpful.

Yes, and use a really large needle, like a size 19 or 25 or 50.
