Stitch Orientation
1 It’s essential to understand that every stitch should sit on the needle the correct way. The yarn from the previous stitch (the loop’s right leg) is at the front of the needle. The yarn going to the next stitch (the loop’s left leg) is at the back of the needle.
2 To knit a stitch sitting on the needles the wrong way: Insert right needle into stitch from front to back and knit stitch.
3 To purl a stitch sitting on the needles the wrong way: Insert needle into stitch from back to front and purl stitch.
