Question: How do you count rows of knitting stitches?

How do you count rows in knitting?

Do you count the first row in knitting?

When counting rows, you do count the loops on the needle, but let’s start by talking about the cast on. If you are talking about following a pattern, then row 1 is always your first row of knitting, since the designer has no idea what type of cast on you will use.

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.
