Question
Hi,
Cast off, working K3B      
Thanks

Answer
It means to knit three stitches in the back loop. It may be a double decrease using the Knit 3 stitches in back loop. Does the instructions say Knit 3 stitches together as 1? If it does say to knit all 3 stitches as 1 stitch you put the tip of your needle into the back of the stitch putting the tip of needle into the first second and third stitches and knit as 1 stitch that is the 3rd stitch from the needle.
