Re: Knitting Row counter

I don't use row counters unless I'm doing some really complicated pattern, particularly one which mixes cables which cross on different rows or some tricky lace pattern.

I do like to have the exact same number of rows on sweater side seams, for instance. Because if you are doing an invisible seam it is important to match stitches on a row-by-row basis. If you are working a simple stockinette piece it is very easy to count your rows if you are unsure. Just pick a line of stitches from the bottom to the top and count each little "v" shape. Takes just a few seconds.
