Note:Again, you want the purl bumps to show on the right side. The color I picked to purl is the coral color (see picture). While working on the right side, as I came to the coral color, I knitted it first. After I turned the fabric to work on the wrong side, as I came to the coral, I knitted it as well, to make the purl bumps appear on the right side.
On the same note, as I was working on the back side of the dishtowel, I purled the coral color as I came to it. When I got to the right side, I purled the coral again, making the purls appear on the front side of the towel.
Clear as mud? Play with it. There are no set rules. I simply wanted that one color to be more prominent on the right side. Make a comment if you have questions and I'll get back to you.
