It says to work even in reverse St stitch for 1 1/2". It's for a section using eyelash yarn. The eyelash yarn comes out more fully on the purl side than on the knit side. Just before the reverse st stitch section, you knit one round.
According to my Reader's Digest COMPLETE GUIDE TO NEEDLEWORK, the purl side of stockinette stitch is referred to as "reverse stockinette stitch", so I am simply purling for this section in my pattern. But, why can't the instructions simply SAY "purl"?
Always a beginner...sometimes I even finish.
Every project is a new beginning.
it dosen't tell you to just purl because you're not purling every row. you are simply putting stockinette on the wrong side of the work. you still have to knit. if it just said purl, then people would be putting garter stitch in that section.
You're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I'm tripping you
