purl on or knit on???
I am working a pattern for a long cardigan sweater in stockinette with garter trim. The pattern calls to co sts at beg of ws rows. We all know that would be the purl side. Should I purl on or will it work if I knit on? Thanks so much for your help!!

If the garter trim is to be added later, knitting onto the WS row may be laying a purl foundation for you to pick up sts for that garter trim.

The CO won't really make a difference, you just have to purl the new stitches when you work across the row. So you can use the knit CO.
