I am trying to make a ski hat with flaps (The Red Baron Flies Again). I am using dpn (hate 'em) and the directions say to cast on 4 stitches (ok so far, as long as it's ok to do the long string cast on)
Row 1 (WS) purl....
Row 2: k1,M1,K to last stitch, M1,K1 ( 2 stitch increase)
Repeat rows 1 and 2 7 times until there are 18 stitches.
......Here is my problem...How the heck do you purl (or do anything for that matter) on the wrong side. I have this little squggle of yarn, and I assume the wrong side means that the side with the stitches, instead of facing to the right, must face to the left. This leaves me with the empty needle in the wrong hand and I am totally lost. I assume this wrong side business must be important, right? And here I am at the very beginning of these directions and unable to continue .....HELP
