View Full Version : The right side of garter stitch

I am knitting a blanket and it says to knit on the right side & then further down the instructions it says to knit on the wrong side. I am really confused because both sides look the same. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Both sides are the same. I think they just want you to make sure you knit on both sides rather than knit on one side and purl on the other the way you would for stockinette. :shrug:

If they're mentioning the wrong side because you're meant to start a particular instruction on the wrong side, I'd just go by where the tail from your cast on is. It depends on how you cast on, but when I use the long tail caston, the tail is always hanging down from the first stitch on my right side rows. That's the only way I know of that you can tell right side from wrong side on garter stitch.

Thank you both for the explanation, I think I understand the instructions.
