Right side in knitting patterns is often abbreviated as RS, while wrong side is written as WS. The right side of your knitting is the face of the fabric. This is the side that will be on the outside of a garment. The wrong side is the back side of the fabric, and will be on the inside of a garment.
What is a pattern repeat in knitting?
If you’re working a stitch pattern such as ribbing, you work the same combination of stitches— knit 1, purl 1, for example—many times across the row. Instructions that are repeated are termed “ repeats,” and to simplify instructions and save (lots and lots of) space, knitting patterns use special notation for them.
How do you cast on vertical stripes?

The tail at the bottom of your work (the yarn leftover from the cast-on row) should fall to the right of your work. When knitting in stocking stitch, this is what the right- side of your work will look like. If your pattern tells you to end on a RS row, your final row would start with the tail on the right-hand side.
What does end on wrong side mean in knitting?
