On WS should be on RS
 
I am knitting rows 1-12 of my pattern ten times (Row 1 being RS). I completed a few sets (rows 1-12) already, I am now starting row 1 again but noticed I'm on the WS. My question is can I knit an extra row just to get me on the RS of row 1?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome to KH! What are you knitting? Do you have a pattern name or a link to the pattern?

Technically you could. But I'd have to say that what you ultimately decide to do depends on several factors. Some of which are: your tolerance for things not being "just so," how badly the extra knit row interrupts the pattern stitch, and your gauge.

If you're a perfectionist you may want to try to figure out where the error is, and rip back to correct it, because as it is now your pattern stitch is on the WS of your fabric.

Thanks Charlotte! I will rip back though I'm always afraid I will further confuse things. Wish me luck!

See if you can spot the row that's missing or extra before you rip back. You may not have to take out all of the pattern rows. Consider too, using a lifeline as you go along to make it easier if you have to rip back. It's saved me many times.

Thank you! I wasn't aware of lifeline method, good to know. I will use at times going forward.

Hi Claire!

My pattern is attached - I placed an asterisk on row I (my problem row). Let me know what you think. This is my first garment project. I'm excited!

File too big - can't attach :0(

Hi Darcy - Thank you so much for trying to attach that file. Do you have a pattern name?

I recall in an earlier thread there was a suggestion to use a safety pin to mark the right side of your knitting. In a recent project I used a contrasting yarn and tied it in a bow :) on the right side.

You must be so excited! Your first garment project, congratulations :cheering:

Hi Claire! Patten is: Noro long vest designed by Dana Matuskey (bias-knit bodice and lacy shell-pattern skirt).
