So lets say that I am knitting the bust part of a nightgown, and lets say that it is just a regular tube. Now lets say that I want to use a pattern out of Vogue Encyclopedia, but the directions are for straight needles. Would I just reverse the direction to the opposite?
So for instance it says
k1 p1 ssk k2tog k2 p2p1 k1 k2tog ssk p2 k2
Would I make the second line
k1 p1 ssk k2tog k2 p2?
It's not so simple as just reversing stitches; you have to reverse the order too.
Like - p2, k2, k2tog, ssk, p1, k1
That way your purls and knits stack up on each other.
