This is gonna sound really dumb - but I’m confused again!
One of Amy’s vids says to recognize a knit and a purl, use the stitch on the needle as a head and see if the stitch below is a scarf or a noose - a scarf is a knit stitch, a noose is a purl.
BUT - which way should I be holding the work to look at it? If I look at it as if holding to do the next row, the stitches on the last row look like nooses, but if I turn around to the way it has just been knit they look like scarves.
So as I’m about to knit/purl into a stitch, if it looks like a noose - was it a knit or a purl on the row before?
