The flat side with all the V’s on it is the “right” side. The bumpy purl side is the “wrong” side. If your pattern calls for Reverse Stockinette, it’s the opposite. In other patterns, you will quickly be able to recognize the right and wrong sides after working a few rows of the pattern.

Do you cast off on the right or wrong side?
I prefer Casting Off on the Right Side of my work, which is the front side. If you are working your knitting project from a pattern, it will tell you when it is time to cast off.

What does knit 2 together mean?
Knit two together is the most basic method of decreasing stitches. It makes a decrease that slants slightly to the right and is often abbreviated as K2Tog or k2tog in patterns. To “knit two together” is just like making a regular knit stitch, but you work through two stitches instead of just one.
Is first row after cast on right side or wrong side?

Is your cast on row your first row?
Most patterns do not count the cast on as the first row. They tell you to cast on a number of stitches and then start row 1 usually designating it as right or wrong side row, unless you are knitting in the round, then just row 1. So, the cast on does not count as a row.
