Right Side Versus Wrong Side Before

Rows 2, 4 and 6 (WS): K2, *p3, k2; rep from * to end.

Row 5: P2, yo, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yo, p2; rep from * to end.

Rep rows 1-6 for bell rib. After

Rnd 5: *Yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, p2; rep from * to end.

Rep rounds 1-6 for bell rib.

Note: The 2 extra stitches for centering the pattern when working flat are eliminated when working in the round.

Remember that when you are working in the round, all rows—rounds, actually—are right-side, or RS, rows. As a result, when you rewrite your pattern, all right-side rows can be worked in the round as they are written, as long as you eliminate any stitches that may have been added outside the pattern repeat as selvages. For a wrong-side, or WS, row, keep in mind the following:

  • Purl stitches on the WS are knit stitches on the RS.
  • Read written instructions backward—from the end of the WS row to the beginning of the WS row—and write them out so that you do not become confused. For example, if the WS row reads, "Knit 1, purl 4," rewrite it as "Knit 4, purl 1."
  • Read all rows of charted patterns from right to left.
  • For WS instructions that say "with yarn in back," or wyib, substitute "with yarn in front," or wyif, and vice versa.
