Wrong Side -What does it mean?


What is meant by "wrong side" ?


A wrong side of knitting refers to a side that won't be shown when the work is done.

For example, when you look at knitting instruction you'll see an indication of a right side (RS) and a wrong side (WS). It's usually at row 1 and 2.

So, for a pattern that starts out with the 1st row being the right side, the rest of the odd number rows will be your right side and the even rows will be the wrong side.

I hope this helps,
