View Full Version : about counting rows
When counting rows, the cast on doesn't count right? When it says to "knit 12 rows", does that mean the 12th is the loops on the needle or the 12 completed rows (13th loops on needle)? Thanks

Right, the CO is a cast on, row one is the one you knit after that. The 12th row is the last completed row, not the one on your needles. I count the bumps on the WS in stockinette or ribbing.

It sort of looks like a knit row at first, but after you have several more rows on, the knit/bumps disappear. It's not considered the first row by most people who use it, and IMO saying it is unnecessarily confuses new knitters who don't know whether to start with R 1 or 2 of a pattern, or the RS or WS.
And I thought it was a simple question.... to clarify please, I CO and now I am beginning to knit .... this is my first row and my RS. correct?
