Knitting an Afghan

by fay
(s.windsor,ct)

I'm knitting an Afghan the instruction state as rows 1-12:knit across.

Row 13 (right side): knit across.

Would you explain to me what they mean in row 13"(right side)"?

Thank you.

YOUR ANSWER


I think the person who wrote the pattern added this descriptor (right side) to help the knitter to orient themselves to the front and the back of the knitted piece.

I suspect that the next few rows are a different stitch pattern to the first thirteen rows.

The first twelve rows are garter stitch (knit both sides) and will look the same on both sides. The instruction just tells you which side will be the front of the work.
