Does crochet have a right and wrong side?

How do you know which is the right side of crochet?

When crocheting stitches, the part of the stitch that is facing you as you work is called the Right Side. A better way to think of this is the front of your work.

Does it matter which way you turn your work in crochet?

It may not seem like it matters, but turning in crochet ought to be done consistently each time. That is, you should be turning the same way every time you turn to the next side. The turn creates a neat edge, which is important if you are joining two pieces or seaming garments.

Do you crochet from left to right?

When working in rounds, left-handed crocheters work to the right (counter clockwise) and right-handed crocheters work to the left (clockwise). When working back and forth in rows, the finished crochet work will look exactly the same for both right and left, except for where the work was fastened off (ended).

What does ending on a wrong side row mean in crochet?

When your pattern tells you to end on a wrong side row it means that the last row you knit is the one on the wrong side (hidden side) of your project. So if you are knitting in stocking stitch (stockinette) the last row you work is a purl row so that you are ready to knit the next row.
