SnB N's Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers, again. (Impossible?)

So I'm finally going to cast on again and try the "Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers". Let me just confirm some stuff with everyone here before I start and have to frog due to my naivete. A cabling chart is read from the bottom up and right to left, correct? The rows are numbered bottom to top, so it's more the r->l that I'm concerned about, because it probably makes a difference.

Also on the key for the chart, it says slip right needle through next 3 st as if to k, k through the front, back, and front of all 3 sts. I know this is going to sound really stupid, but does that mean to knit each stitch 3 times or knit the 1st stitch through the front, 2nd through the back, and 3rd through the front. Or does it mean something entirely different?
