" Just My Thought " <<<<<

Some where in the pattern start does it tell you that you are working the w s row ?
I find that on the patterns I use > most will give you that information.

Others here will have more helpful directions >>

And I can look at either side to see which could be a side I would use as a w s.

Even in Crochet the 1st row looks smoother , so I use it as the r s even without instruction.

( unless the pattern uses it as a w s )
