You asked: How do you count rows in crochet?

What is considered a row in crochet?

For example, single crochet stitches are smaller and closer together while treble crochet stitches are tall and spaced apart. Also, the foundation chain itself does not count as a row. Once you’ve worked your stitches into those chains, then you’ve completed your first row. So the foundation row always counts as a row.

How do you count knitting rows?

To count the number of rows in your knitting, count the stitches (the V’s) vertically, including the loop over the needle. I’ve only highlighted five rows, but if you wanted to count the total number of rows you have worked, continue counting vertically down the column of stitches.

How do you count cast on stitches?

Easy – just count the number of loops on your LH needle. The slipknot you made first counts as a stitch. TENSION: Don’t pull tightly on the new loop after placing it on the LH needle, or the stitch will be too tight for you to insert your needle into it when you knit the next row.

Does the cast off row count as a row?

The cast on doesn’t count as a row. But it’s easier to count all the rows in the worked fabric, below the needle, and just not count the loops on the needle.
