That would be the logical conclusion except for the fact that since you are doing circular knitting instead of flat the wrap is coming from the opposite direction and to try and continue the circle it causes gaping, holes, twisted stitches and bumps depending on how you do it. I've tried various ways to do it and it comes out the same way everytime. Some better than others but never the same way as when you turn it from the original knit to purl side. The purl to knit side always comes out differently. The only way to trully understand is do it and you'll see what I mean.
