I have been knitting for over 50 years, but have neve knitted a pleated skirt. I am now knitting one for my granddaughter and am having a ptoblem. Anybody that can help me would be greatly appreciated!!!! After knitting the body, consists of knitting and purling it says on next row to slip 6 stitches on to a double-pointed needle, slip another 6 stitches on second double pointed needle, turn the 2nd needle so wrong sides of both needles are tog. Align left-hand needle behind the 2 double-pointed needles and knit tog the first st from each of the 3 needles(pleat made). Rep 15 times more. What happens to the other 5 stitches on the double-pointed needles?
I am really confused.
