What is it called when you knit one row and purl the next?

How do you know the wrong side in knitting?

The easiest way to distinguish the sides is to look at a simple swatch in Stockinette Stitch. The flat side with all the V’s on it is the “right” side. The bumpy purl side is the “wrong” side. If your pattern calls for Reverse Stockinette, it’s the opposite.
