What does WS and RS mean in knitting?

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.

What does RS mean on a knitting pattern?

RS row – right-side row. WS row – wrong-side row. Right-side = tail on the right. Here is an example of a right-side row. The tail at the bottom of your work (the yarn leftover from the cast-on row) should fall to the right of your work.

What does ending on a RS row mean?

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