I have a pattern for a reversible basket weave scarf that I would love to try (am a fairly new self taught knitter) and the instructions state
Row 1 (RS): k4, p5, k1, p1, k1, repeat from * to * as necessary
All wrong side rows: work sts as they present themselves
Odd numbered rows are the right side and even are the wrong side.
What does work stitches as they present themselves mean?
