Hi
I am working on enterlac pattern.. but the question is about basic knitting
the pattern talks about RS and WS... now my understanding about WS was u turn the work.. so whatever is in ur rt hand comes in left hand and vice versa
but then.. there comes a pt in pattern where it says.. dont turn.. and u will have 10 sts on rt needle.. that is 10 shud b on left.. but i get all 20 sts on one needle.. is my understanding about RS and WS is incorrect

pattern link:

The RS or the WS can be in either hand, that doesn't have anything to do with it. The RS is the side that faces out on your item when worn, the WS faces in. In this pattern the first row is going to be the WS, and it's a purl row, the RS is the knit row.

On row 15, you've done the sts and they're still on the right needle. Then you're going to do whatever it says next. Which will probably be to pick up some sts to make the next triangle.

Then you either didn't do the last row, or did one too many because you should have sts on both needles.
