I found a really cute pattern for a baby hat but there's a couple of abreviations I don't know, can anyone help me out?
The first one is in the stitch pattern, it says, Row 1 (RS), what does RS mean?
then it says Row 2 (WS), what does WS mean?
Then on another pattern I noticed that it said to work in round, does this just mean on the connected needles? How do I get the beginning and end of my stitches to connect when I'm knitting?
Okay, I edited this because I think I might have found the answers to my own questions lol. RS is right side and WS is wrong side, right? and working in round means on 3 needles like for mittens, right?
But now I'm wondering what M1 stands for lol.. sorry to bother you ladies so much.
In the round simply means taking your cast-on stitches and joining them into a circle so you're knitting a tube. You can do this on double-pointed needles or on circular needles (the ones that are connected by a cord)
M1 means make one. There are a couple of ways to do this, does your pattern specify how? One simple way is just to knit into the front and back of the same stitch.
