I’ve got the long tail cast on down cold (I love that sling shot method) but I never know what to do on the next row. The patterns always start with a RS row, but the long tail cast on creates what looks to me like a RS, so do I cast on and then pick up the pattern with the first WS row? Do I add a WS row before picking up the pattern? Or do I just cast on and start the pattern and ignore the fact that the cast on looks better from the other side?
I’m just about to start a simple ballband dishcloth from Mason Dixon Knits, so gauge isn’t crucial or anything, but I would like that pattern to be symmetrical, so I want to make the width of the bindoff stripe match the width of the cast on stripe.
Hope that made any sense at all. Thanks in advance!
