Hello Every body
I am new to knitting,well not very new,when I was carrying 2 years back,I did knit.I knit a sweater,a hat and a pair of socks for my girl baby.now after 2 years again I have started knitting.now I am knitting a sweater for my husband.Fortunately I found this wonderful website.I have a couple of doubts regarding the pattern I am knitting.It would be great if some one could help me.
1.first of all I would like to know if stockinette stitch starts with a knit or purl?
2.my pattern says,"knit stockinette for 17 inches ending with W.S row" what does this mean?do I need to end with the knit side facing me or purl side facing me?
3.is cast off same as bind off?
