Maybe I'm just not getting it... I did after all get a CAPTCHA addition problem wrong earlier :-).
I have two questions about the following from Michael del Vecchio's wallet in "Knitting With Balls".
"...work in pattern for 3.5", ending on a WS row. Purl 4 rows. Begin on WS row, continue in pattern..."
Here are my two questions:
1) If I end on a WS row and purl 4 rows (RS, WS, RS, WS) don't I then have to begin on a RS row? Does "ending on a WS row" really mean work a RS row and be ready to work a WS row?
2) Why purl 4 rows? Why not just knit 4 rows?
