How to interpret wrong side row

by Savannah

Hi there,

I'm working on a pattern that says "your last row must be a wrong side row." Does that mean a) that the wrong side is facing you and that's where you move on in the pattern or b) you just knitted a wrong side row, so the right side should be facing you? I know the difference between right and wrong rows, but I just wanted to clarify if that means the right or wrong side should face you.

Thanks so much,

Hi Savanna,

Thanks for the question. When a pattern instructs that "your last row must be a wrong side row," it typically means that you should end on a wrong side row and that the wrong side of the work should be facing you when you finish that row (before turning the work).

This is important because it sets you up to start the next section or stitch pattern on the right side of the work.

So, the answer is b.

I hope this is not too confusing. Have a great evening!
