How do you knit WS or RS?

What is the difference between right side and wrong side in 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.

Do you cast off on the right or wrong side?

I prefer Casting Off on the Right Side of my work, which is the front side. … You usually end a pattern after knitting the wrong side, or backside, so I’m going to start our Cast Off row on the right side.

What does ending on a RS row mean?

End with RS row’ means you‘ve just finished knitting it.

What does ending on a WS 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.
