Altair starts at one point and is worked in a pattern that increases on the neck edge towards the shortest edge. RS and WS are notional as pattern is fully reversible. As the pattern starts at a point it makes sense to start the pattern as your swatch. Stop, wash and block the piece to check tension and drape then if satisfied you can continue to work.
