How do you know which is the wrong 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.
Do you cast off on the right or wrong side?
