Do you count the row on the needle when knitting?
When we are counting our rows from the beginning of a piece, we generally do not count the “cast on” row as a row of knitting. On the other hand, the stitches that are on our needle, do count as a row.
How do I know what row I am knitting?
In order to count your rows in stocking stitch, you just need to count the “V’s” in the column with the right side facing you. As you can see, each V is equivalent to one row. You also need to count the stitch that is currently on the needle as one whole row.
Is the first row in knitting the right side?
The first row of a knitting pattern is considered the right side, and the second row is considered the wrong side. Since one is an odd number, all of the odd rows are right side facing. The even rows are on the wrong side.
Does the slip knot count as a stitch?
When counting your chain stitches at the start of a pattern—which you must do very carefully before continuing—note that the loop on the crochet hook is never counted as a stitch and the starting slip knot is never counted as a stitch.
Does turning chain count as a stitch?
Treble Crochet Turning Chain Explanation This chain DOES count as a stitch, meaning you will skip the very first stitch (sometimes called a false stitch ) and create your first treble crochet into the next stitch.
