I'm knitting a scarf -- a basic, straightforward pattern on size 8 needles that repeats one knit row and one row K1, P1. It's my first project.
I got about 40 rows in, working away happily, and then I noticed that in my last 6 rows the pattern appears on the "wrong" or opposite side of where I started. I think I've "reversed" my knitting somehow... but I don't know how!?
I'm not unhappy with the result -- it creates a block look that could be nice if repeated throughout the scarf -- but since I don't know what I did I'm pretty sure I'll won't be able to do it again.
Can anyone explain this to me in beginner's language? Is it the way the work is facing when I start a row?
