I’m fairly new to knitting. I’m knitting a boy’s vest in the round. I am at the point where I divide for armholes and begin the back. I’ve been doing the stockinette stitch, knitting every row on the circular needles. Now it says I will be working back and forth on the back stitches (only 46). The pattern says when knitting back and forth to knit one row and purl the next.
I have two questions:
My right side has been on the inside of the needles from the beginning and looks fine. Someone told me that it should have been on the outside. Is this a problem?
I don’t understand where it says I’ll be going back and forth. How do I do that on circular needles? Do I just change hands with the needles as on straight needles or do I have to flip the whole vest over the needles.
I hope I made myself clear. Thanks for any help!
