Ok might sound stupid, on this diagram do I read right to left in the direction i knit or left to right in the way i read (if that makes sense) i normally do right to left but had so many issues with this pattern I’m doubting everything, pic at bottom
Thank you

Are you knitting flat? RS rows are read from right to left, WS rows are read from left to right.
If you’re knitting in the round, all rows are read from right to left.

What pattern is this from?

Thank you that’s what I thought but that doubt kicked in lol its early nap pants from drop patterns xx

I know how that is! What a cute pattern.
