  1. Just reading the pattern if you cast o the traditional method then row 1 will be on the right side. According to the pattern row 1 starts on the wrong side. Please clarify. Should you knit 1 row that does not count as a row. Or am I missing something.

    1. Dorothy,
      I understand your comment about traditionally the first row should be the right side but this does not always have to be true as there are various stitch patterns that begin with a wrong side row.
      However, you can work an extra knit row as a foundation row it will make no difference to the stitch pattern.

  2. Thank you
