I’m new to knitting and there’s something I just can’t figure out: I can cast on using the backward loop without difficulty, but it seems as though my stitches always face the wrong way. I’ve learnt that the RIGHT leg of the stitch should always be “in front”. But when I cast on it’s just the opposite. It’s not something I’m doing wrong, because I see that in the tutorials of this cast-on method, the right leg is always in front. But there’s no mention of the stitches facing the wrong way. Also, I’ve noticed that the FIRST stitch of this initial row can’t be knitted towards the back. Odd.
I just can’t figure it out.
I’ve experimented with another way of casting on which I came to on my own, and then I’ve had my stitches all lined up the “right” way.
Could someone explain this to me? Thanks!!
