Cast on 82 sts loosely with size 10 needles. Work 1WS row P, then work drop st patt.
I've established through the gauge swatch that I need to start with size 8 needles.
1) "Work 1WS ro P" Does that mean the first row after the cast on is purl?
2) Do I work the drop stitch pattern from the purl direction? If so, is that because Im working the wrong side?
