I'm going a bit nuts here folks. I've given up the ghost and started making a freaking coat for Yoda. Only problem is I don't understand one of the abbreviations for the patterns.

What the frell does "RS" mean when the pattern says: 1st row: (RS)

It doesn't say in my crochet book! *flail*

By the way, this has somehow gotten [personal profile] ivorygates imagining how Jack O'Neill would bitch over the same thing while being forced to learn to crochet (or knit) after an apocalypse (Cameron being his ever-so-patient tutor). She's even brought up the idea of a ficathon called 'Apocalypse Yarn". I am innocent in this pondering, I swear.*cackle*

eta: tis solved! teh interwebs are awesomesauce!

From my very accomplished knitting friend:

It means right side. WS means wrong side. So that side will be the side with the pattern, aka the Front.

RS in knitting terms means right side, so it is the front of the pattern that shows when you wear the thing.

Happy knitting :D

If you look at your work and it looks more like the dog than the coat you intended, it could also mean "Rip Shit."
