The stitches that are on the needles are shaped like upside down horseshoes. In English and Continental knitting, the open face of this horseshoe will face to the left, or left oriented. We Russian, Combined, and Eastern European knitters have the open horseshoes facing the right, or right oriented. Some Eastern knitters like to call their style Eastern Uncrossed. I'm not trying to confuse you, but that's a term you might see once in a while. The first part of this Eastern European instruction video shows the orientation of these styles, or how the stitches face.
