No, in knitting you are always knitting back and forth unless otherwise instructed to do so. you follow each row by row-row 1-right side, row 2-wrong side. The instructions are for line by line, there's no flipping involved.

Hi. I want to make this shawl, but was wondering if you are supposed to purl back between each row? For example, you knit row 2 as per directions, then do you flip the work, purl back to where you started and then start in on row 3? OR do you just do the pasttern line by knit row two, flip the work, start in on row 3? I am leaning toward purling on the wrong side and having each knitted row interspersed with a purled row. Thanks for any help. -Amber

Your pattern should tell you what do do, for example, it might say Row 2 and all wrong side rows, purl across. If there is patterning needed on alternate/wrong side rows it will give you instructions for that.

You follow the pattern exactly. Do not add rows that are not there. Each row is stated, sometimes rows are the same, but just follow and you will be fine.
