Need help with this

I am trying to knit a purse and the directions say knit the knit and purl the purl as they appear…what does this mean? Would i just be doing the previous row backwards?

Don’t try to make it too complicated- as you come to each stitch, look at the one below it. If it looks like a knit stitch (v) then knit it. If it looks like a purl stitch (-) then purl it. :slight_smile:

On the current row, knit the sts that look like knits and purl the ones that look like purls.
