Which side do you cast off when knitting?

Do you cast off on 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.

Do you bind off on right or wrong side?

Usually, you bind off on the right side of the work but you can also bind off on the wrong side if needed. Unless otherwise specified in your pattern, you would work purl stitches on your bind off so that the right side of your work shows a knitted bind off pattern.

Can you cast off in purl stitch?

In a purled row, the stitches we have on our needle are purled as well. We are going to cast off the stitches in the same way: purling them. Purl 2 stitches, pass the second stitch onto the right-hand needle over the first letting it fall off the needle. You will have cast off one stitch.

How do you finish knitting on the wrong side?

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.
