I had to rip out a couple of rows and now I dont know which row I'm on! ( thats ok- its the chart thing I'm suddenly confused about) Is the k side always on the right and p always on the left? (Its all stockinette and now I'm on p but I think my pattern should start on k! YIKES!!!
We don't know anything about your chart, so couldn't say. If you're doing stockinette you would knit on the right side, and purl on the wrong side, not the same as the right and left edge of your work.
