View Full Version : Wrong side to right side
03-04-2011, 07:36 PM
So my pattern states:
Rows 1-9: K1, (P1,K1) across
Row 10: (Right Side): Knit across
Row 11: Purl across
After row 9, I should be knitting on the "wrong side", so how do I change my work so that I'm knitting on the "right side"?
And how do I then do row 11? Do I change sides again?

Just turn your knitting at the end of the row as you've been doing. They're just giving you information as to which rows will be considered the right side and which are the wrong side, you don't do anything different, just knit the rows as given. The first 9 rows make a reversible pattern, then R 10 will be the RW, and with the purls on the WS/row 11 makes stockinette stitch.

What happens if you've picked the opposite side of the pattern as the right side, and you get to this part of the instructions?

I'm supposed to repeat that throughout the pattern, so when I first followed the instruction I continued like you said to, but it didn't come out like it was suppose to.
Is that the only way to interpret the instructions? cause according to what I've been reading, the first stitch you do is the "right side" and after that its every other one so in a normal pattern row 10 would fall on the wrong side.

Then either do another row in the k1 p1 pattern, or start with row 11 and purl that row, one row off isn't going to matter.
"... the first stitch you do is the "right side""
Nooo, the entire row is the right side - and you knit the entire row. As I said, if you prefer the other side of the k p pattern to be the RS that's fine. After 9 rows, purl the next, knit the next and so on. It may help if you could link to the pattern you're working on.

I get it now. I just a little confused there, and not having done it correctly the first time around didn't help.
Thanks for you're help!
