‪If a knitting pattern says to end in a right side row does that mean the row you have just knitted is right side or the row you are about to knit? ‬

Not to confuse things and I'll confess I'm not 100% confident in what I'm about to type, but I think right side and wrong side refer to the outside (being the right side of the garment) and the inside (being the wrong side)

Hopefully someone who doesn't muddle their way through knitting patterns will be along shortly to clarify.

I've always thought it was inside and outside too

Oh I know which one is the right and wrong side, it’s just the pattern says ‘knit to 17 cm and end on a rs row’.

The last row you knit should be a right side row.

It depends what stitch you're doing. Stocking stitch (knit a row pearl a row) the smooth side is the right side and should be facing you as you finish.

If it's garter stitch (knit every row) I have no idea sorry smile
