I'm knitting a swatch for a sweater from one of the Sally Melville knitting books. Anyways,she is explaining how to read a knitting chart. The pattern is a 3 block P8 K8 P8 . So she shows the chart and she also provides the written instructions for the chart. Actually I understand the chart - but in her written instructions she says " Rows 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12 (RS) K all sts. How can you knit rows 11 and 12 both on the RS? When I read the knitting chart - row 11 is on the RS but row 12 is on the WS. I thought I would have to P row 12. Can anyone help please?

Looks like a misprint to me and what's shown as row 12 should perhaps read row 13

I am guessing that row 12 is included by mistake in the RS instructions and should be in the WS instructions.

Thank you all. I was trying to find out any corrections that the author might have noted recently since these are fairly older books. But she doesn't mention any corrections in this book.

Row 12 is not a wrong side row but the directions for it are correct - knit all the stitches. She could have grouped Row 12 with the other wrong side rows, but you might have missed it since instructions for rows 13, 15, etc. would have already been given above.

I'm sorry I don't understand. In the chart I thought I would read row 12 from left to right. I thought in the chart on the left side all the numbered rows are WS rows. Please excuse my dumb questions about this....

In row 12 it doesn't matter which direction you read it -- it is all knit stitches

Sorry, my mistake. I should have said Row 12 is not a right side row. It is a wrong side row, and you should work it from left to right, but you knit every stitch just as you did on rows 1,3,5,7,9,11. The difference is that Row 12, when viewed from the front or right side, will appear as a row of purl stitches.

I can't really see the picture, it's just too small for my eyes, but go with the chart, it is most likely correct.

I believe that from the key, you will knit all of row 11 and row 12, as a transition.
It occurs again in rows 20 and 21. What can be read along the side also indicates that you would need to do at least 12 rows to see the pattern.
The grayed squares are purl on the RS and knit on the WS. You just don’t notice it as much in the blocks that are alternating below.

You can read row 12 from left to right, but it is the same. It IS the WS of your fabric. Follow the key.

Tip: Put a marker on the side that is your front (RS) and use some method to count the rows.
