Switching to wrong side

Salmonmac and Knitcindy, you both are wonderful and patient and so helpful. I truly DO appreciate your explaining all of this to me. TRULY!!! I’m so blessed I found you!!! SMILE!

I am very new to knitting – that’s obvious, heh? LOL. And to actually find a forum where I can ask for help is AMAZING! I’ve been doing this on my own for a few months and managed to make a pillow (just 2 big squares stitched together) and a hat! SMILE! But I’ve been trying to learn different STITCHES and this checkerboard pattern is a square I want to use to make a patchwork pillow – I’m making 8 squares. This checkerboard will be one of the squares.

So thank you again for all the help you’re giving me. REALLY!!!
