Transom back panel question

I’m a little late to the transom party, but excited to get going-- I just learned how to do cables by knitting my swatch!

I’m wondering, on the back panel-- are the edge stitches (separated by the markers) supposed to be knit on every row?

(Also, I’m getting confused on how to start a post here, so I apologize if this ends up in some odd spot! I couldn’t figure out how to post it in the transom refresh-along.)

You mean the stitches at the beginning and the end of the set up to, correct? Knit the right side purl the wrong side. At least, that’s what I’ve done.

That’s what I figured after checking some photos on ravelry. Thanks for confirming it for me!
