Help - I’ve just started knitting again and working on the Perkins Cove sweater by Quince & Co.
After I did a long-tail cast on and joined the round, the instructions say:
Set up rnd place markers: K40 back sts . . .
What the heck is back sts?
I’m from the old school of knit and purl. I’ve looked everyone where and found instructions on knitting through the front and back sts, but not plain old back sts.
