I'll Try It

I think you see it so much in the video because itís such thick yarn on maybe a smaller needle.
OK, thanks. This makes a lot of sense, and you're right. The yarn in the video was thick. I guess you've solved my tail problem then. I'm going to assume that most knitters do this. Please let me know if I'm wrong or if there are any other novice options. Thank you.

You don't really need to reply to this, I just wanted to say that I don't even KNOW which side is the right and which the wrong! Then I read something about "left and right hand legs" and "front and back." I will just assume that your closing remark means to check out different options on the Internet. Thank you.

You absolutely made the best choice in checking it out.
Thanks alot, GrumpyGramma! I am convinced by the experienced replies I've received that they are right. Everything would come loose. Indeed, we a lucky to have experts to turn to.

The 'right side' is the side that's worn to the outside, the 'wrong side' is worn facing the body. For patterns like scarves and sts like garter st, either side can be RS/WS. For stockinette st pattern (knit one row, purl the next) the knit side is considered the RS. If you go to the Tips page and scroll about halfway down to the Duplicate Stitch Join under Joining a new Color, the video shows how to weave in ends over existing sts so they won't show.
