Frequent question: What does finish on a right side row mean in knitting?

What does finish on wrong side row mean?

When your pattern tells you to end on a wrong side row it means that the last row you knit is the one on the wrong side (hidden side) of your project. So if you are knitting in stocking stitch (stockinette) the last row you work is a purl row so that you are ready to knit the next row.

How do you know the right side of knitting?

The easiest way to distinguish the sides is to look at a simple swatch in Stockinette Stitch. The flat side with all the V’s on it is the “right” side. The bumpy purl side is the “wrong” side. If your pattern calls for Reverse Stockinette, it’s the opposite.

What does ending with Row 1 mean?

Row 1 (RS): Knit. … This means that on Row 1, which is the right side of the piece (RS), you will knit all 12 stitches on the needle. Then for Row 2, the wrong side (WS) of the piece, you will purl every stitch. The pattern may now say: Rep Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 4” from the beginning, ending with a WS row.

Does the cast on count as a row?

The cast on doesn’t count as a row. But it’s easier to count all the rows in the worked fabric, below the needle, and just not count the loops on the needle.
