I am trying to change a washcloth pattern because I’m not comfortable doing “seed stitch” and when i tried to get help it still wasn’t helping me… so I am making the wash cloths that have a “design” on them with a border. I prefer 1 designer’s style of how she makes hers, but the design I like is by a different designer who uses seed stitch.
I emailed the designer of the pattern, and I just feel bad if I have to email her again… she had mentioned if I tried another “border” to only cast on 40 instead of 42.
What I’m trying to do is follow her pattern and at the end of each row K4 on every row. My problem is, I can’t tell my right side from the “wrong” side so I’m not sure since her directions say to seed stitch across row (and I am not doing that), when her Pattern starts for the design I dont know whether I should be on the right side or the wrong side.
Am I making sense to anyone? do I need to omit a row to get the pattern on the correct side?
Also when I’m just beginning my project, does which side of the needle your tail is on help me know if I’m on the right side or wrong side? ie if the tail is on the tip side is that the right side of my work or the “wrong” side?
I am a new knitter so reading patterns is not easy for me or looking at my work and knowing it is right is another problem. thanks
