I'm getting started on the Paintbox Clutch from knittingbag.com. Seems like a simple enough pattern but I need a little help...

The beginning of the pattern reads,
1.   Work st st for 4 rows
2.   Purl 1 row on the right side (RS)
3.   Then work st st for 4 more rows.  Purl 1 row on RS
4.   Work st st for 8 rows.

So, maybe I'm over thinking this but when I start the second set of stst on the 3rd line do I still start with a knit or purl row??  Smiley

I've never made that clutch - but it is very cute just wish it didn't cost so much - so this is a guess.

I think on row 3 you would start your

Scratch that thought because I put it on the chalkboard and it is screwy either way.

I thought you would purl - because it looks like you are creating that little purl ridge at the top of the clutch. Also that would keep the stockinette on the rightside.

The problem is the next line says work st st for 4 rows. Purl 1 row rs.

After 4 rows you will be on the ws not rs.

Anyway this is longer than I meant but I would:
A - p row5, p r6, k r7, p r8, k r9, next you are suppose to p on rs but you are on the wrong side so I guess purl one more for the wrong side - then purl on right side and go back to purl-knit-purl again.

Actually for $50.00 I'd ask them what is up.

St st for 4 rows, the 5th row is purl on the RS. To continue in st st for 4 more rows the next row is purl (which would be on the WS). Then k, p, k, p, the purl again on the RS row. (Ignore the part where I have 5 rows of st st - in order to p on the RS, you have to st st for either 3 or 5 rows. 5 looks better).

if you look at the enlarged pic, though, it does appear to switch between the knit side being the right side and the purl side being the right side...  so maybe they aren't lying when they say four rows...  i would need more info and better pics of the finished product to determine for sure.
