Am I reading this correctly?

Has anyone else started swatching for the Roundabout Tank? I think that there may be a mistake at the beg. of the pattern. According to the pattern you are supposed to create a border and the pattern has you alternate b/w knit and purl rows which will create a stockinette stitch edge. In the photo however, the border looks like garter stitch. Am I missing something?

I pulled out my book, and was going to agree with you, but, looking ahead I'm starting to think it is correct. I think that those first two rows are reverse stockinette stitch.

Row 1: (mostly) purl
Row 2: (mostly) knit
Row 3: (mostly) purl
Row 4: (mostly) knit
--Start Body--
Row 1: (mostly) knit
Row 2: (mostly) purl

So, when you switch to the body part you switch so the stockinette is on the outside.

Does that make sense?

Ah...thanks Lilikoi. That makes sense. Now I don't have to start over! I'll be curious to see how your is going.

Hi. I picked up some yarn at the MSWF to start this one. Gotta gauge today,so appreciate you all posting about this. Yes it sort of confused me, but I was reading it, after getting up at 4am, traveling a total of 500miles and was a bit tired.
