      Hi,

      I worked my gauge swatch with the Cascade 220, washed and blocked it
      and will be knitting on Size 6 needles (4mm). Now I am working a 94
      stitch cable swatch to try out all the cables and measure them after
      washing. Everything was going great until I got to row 3 of the
      chart and came to the "V" symbol! Help!

      I have never heard of a three stitch increase in one stitch before.
      Being a visual learner, I searched through all my knitting books to
      no avail. I'm hoping one of you ladies can explain it to me a
      little better than AS.

      The directions say (k1b,k1) into same st, then insert left hand
      needle point between the vertical strand that runs down between the
      two sts just made and k into this strand, making a third st.

      1. After you knit into the back of the st, do you pull that st off
      onto your right hand needle? Or do you leave it on?
      2. When you make the third st is this similar to what you do when
      you knit a cable cast-on?

      Thanks,
      Rebecca
