I was just reading the increase page and I just noticed that it says you have to increase on the knit side.
I don't like the knit stitch so instead of knitting every row I purl every row (it's so much easier). Does that mean I can never increase while purling?
Also, I didn't know there were "sides" but obviously there are. For example, on the tv show "Knitting and Crocheting Today"
they were knitting a pillow cover and they needed it to be done on both sides, not just one. That's when she said "You knit on this side because this is the knit side and you purl on this side because it's the purl side".
So, if I purl every row and I want it to be reversable I can just turn the needles and do the knit stitch on the other side?Will I get the same design?
I assume you would have to do it at the end of the row.
2 weeks after I started knitting I found out that if you purl every row it's the same design as knitting every row. I don't get how doing 2 different stitches gives you the same design, but that's fine.
Sorry so long..........THANKS!
