Learn how to determine the right and wrong sides of your knitted work. The two sides of your knitting terminology are easily explained!
I receive a lot of great knitting technique & terminology questions from subscribers, like “What’s the difference between the Right and Wrong side of knitting work?”
You will see this often mentioned in Knitting Patterns, with the abbreviation RS for Right Side & WS for Wrong Side.
For some knit swatches, like a garter stitch in all one color, the RIGHT and WRONG side is totally the same, since the same knit stitch is on both sides of the work.
Once we change colors, the RIGHT and WRONG sides becomes obvious. You can think of the Wrong side as the Back Side.
Once we knit patterns, the RIGHT & WRONG side becomes even more obvious.
The Right Side is the intended pattern on the front and the Wrong Side is the backside. For a garment, you can also think of it as the public side and the inside.
