New to crochet and need to understand what is the wrong side

I am fairly new to crocheting and I need to understand what the wrong side refers to in my pattern. The pattern states to chain 124 loosely. Then on Row 1 in parenthesis it says WRONG SIDE. I have read two different answers to other questions and one says it refers to the side of the stitch away from you. The other answer says it refers to what is next to your body when the project is finished. I think it must mean the side of the stitch away from your body. If so the next row does not say anything about the wrong side so do I stitch as I normally would through both sides at the top of the chain stitch?
