How to Work the 1/1/1RC
At the start of the 1/1/1RC there should be a ktbl1, p1, ktbl1 waiting on your LHN.
Take your RHN and stick it in the 3rd stitch on your LHN from the front.
Pinch the first 2 sts on your LHN as you slip them from the needle. The 3rd st should now be sitting on your RHN needle.
Place the 2 pinched sts back on your LHN and then place the first st from your RHN needle back to your LHN. From right to left, there now are a ktbl1, ktbl1, p1 waiting on your LHN needle.
