Hi, I'm Cassandra Allen-Brown from Bagsbycab.com and the Yarn Shop in Denver, Colorado, and today I'm going to teach you how to determine the right and wrong side of crochet work. The first thing that we have here is a pattern that's already completed. It's a scarf. The scarf is made of granny squares. This is a good pattern to review to determine the right side and the wrong side of the crochet work. When you are looking at the pattern on this scarf, the crochet stitches stand out if they are the right side, meaning the correct side. You can see the stitches have a border that determines that this crocheted scarf, granny square, is the right side, meaning the correct side. If you flip it over, this is the wrong side which is the back side and you can determine that because the stitches now have a backside or backward look to them. There is no pattern stitch facing forward. They're just all flat so that's how you can determine the backside which is the wrong side in this crocheted granny square pattern. So this is the wrong side, this is the right side, meaning the correct side, the front side. The pattern stitches have a border that face forward, that is the front side, the correct side. The backside is the wrong side of the pattern because you don't see any pattern stitches facing forward, they're all flat. So that's the difference between the wrong side and the right side of crochet work. I'm Cassandra Allen-Brown, Bagsbycab.com Yarn Shop, Denver, and those were the instructions for the wrong side and the right side of crochet pattern work.
