I'm still a little foggy on this.
Thanks for your responses. I found a pattern for the Besotted Scarf from helloyarn.com and it's directions are as follows:
Cast on 44 sts.
Row 1 (RS) Slip 1, K1, *P2, K8, P2, K2* Repeat from * 2 more times.
Row 2 (WS and all WS rows) Slip 1, P1, *K2, P8, K2, P2* Repeat * 2 more times...
I'm still not entriely sure how to do this. Do I have to flip the piece or do anything to it to make the 1st row on the RS and the 2nd row on the WS, or do I just knit it like I would knit anything else, and the sts will automatically fall on the RS or WS? I have been assuming that I knit with the work facing toward the right as the RS and the work facing the toward the left as the WS. Is this correct? Thanks for any help you can give me.
