What is a "Reverse stockinette" stitch? There are no instructions on how to do it.

Reverse stocking stitch is reversing the rows, so instead of starting on a knit row, you will start on a purl row.

@Debbiewein7 7293784: Hi Debbie, reverse stockinette simply refers to the purl side of stockinette fabric. In reverse stockinette, you will want to purl on the right side of the fabric and knit on the wrong side. Hope this helps! -- Editor of FaveCrafts
