I am making a Polo shirt. It says to cast on 75 stitches, then do 3 rows in stockinette stitch beginning with a knit row. If I use a long tail cast on, would my first row be a purl row, since the cast on already creates a knit row?
Then it says to knit the next row (ws)to make a turning row, and to continue working in document stitch without further shaping. What am I supposed to do? What is this turning row meant for?
