So, I’ve already knit my first garter stitch scarf, but I really need someone to explain the Right Side/Wrong Side concept. If RS or WS appears in a pattern, do you do anything about it? How can you tell RS or WS on a garter stitch piece, or stockingette piece? Do they matter at all? When you cast on (using long-tail or “knitting on”), do you always automatically start with a WS row? What if a pattern says “start with a RS row”? Do you just naturally do that when you knit, or do you actually have to be conscious of making yourself knit on the Right or Wrong side?
I’m just completely lost. Thank you!
