Reverse Knitting: Knitting from Left to Right

Reverse Knitting, Mirror Knitting, Backwards Knitting: Learn how to knit and purl your stitches from left to right
Conventionally, most knitters are taught to work their stitch from right to left. However, did you know that stitches can also be worked from left to right? This technique goes by many names such as reverse knitting, mirror knitting and backwards knitting.

Before You Begin

Some knitters consider reverse knitting to be a novelty skill. Although it does have some practical applications, you could easily knit your entire life without ever learning how to knit from right to left. There are a few situations when being able to knit in reverse could make your projects a little easier, primarily whenever you don't want to turn your work over at the end of a row.
