Okay, to be more clear: I'm actually talking about counting rows.
Here's the thing: when I count the purl bumps, I get a number of 150. When I count each knitted "v" I get half that. So one of the ways I'm counting is totally wrong! That's why I'm posting. I'm assuming that I'm doubling the number of rows when I count on the purl side and that what I really need to do is count the "v"s in front. Yes?
