Felted Box Question

I'm making the felted boxes and I'm confused about the part of the knitted fabric that folds. I think the pattern is written so that the knit side of the folding section is on the outside of the box. But the fabric seems to fold naturally with the purl side on the outside of the box. What have you all done? Does felting change folding tendencies of the fabric?

Comments:
I just finished my first felted box and the knit side of the "fold" row should be on the inside of the box. The knit side is on the RS of the work and in this pattern, the RS is the inside of the box. This is also important when it comes to crocheting up the sides.

Hope this helps; good luck!

That's how I did mine too.
 
Jennifer and Laura are right: the knit side of the folding line is on the INSIDE of the box. The inside of the box is the RS as you are knitting.

Thanks for the advice. I think I got confused when I assumed that the RS would be the outside of the box, like the outside of a sweater.
