Stockinette Stitch Question
Hi,
I am working on a hat in stockinette stitch and have discovered that I occasionally get distracted and forget which row I have left off on, knit or purl.

Does any one have any advice about how to figure out if your last row was knit or purl?

Thanks in advance!

The really easy way is to knit in the round, then it's all knit!

Otherwise, look at your stitches on the needle. If there is a "bump" of yarn across the base of the stitch, that is a purl, and you will purl it to produce stockinette.
If there is no bump, then it's a knit, and you knit it to prduce stockinette.

If your not knitting in the round....Say you just did a row and you look at what you just did...if you see what we call purl "bumps" then you just purled a row. If you see all "v"'s then you just knitted the row.
