What does ending with a WS mean in knitting?
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.
How do you tell the right side from the wrong side in knitting?
