it helps to know what the stitch looks like and how it's made. If you make a swatch like a bunch of short rows of knit....then a bunch of rows of purl....then half the row knit and half the row purl for a bunch of rows....you will soon see that the little knits make "V"'s and the purls look like they have a necklace on them (the bumps). If you flip it over, then you see the reverse of what you saw before....the ones with 'bumps' on one side have Vs on the other....becuase the purl and knit are the opposite of one another....
