Casting off = a knit row?

So, I know that when I cast on that that makes a row of knit stitches. When I cast off (where I stitch one stitch over the other), does that create a knit row as well?

ummm…it creates a bindoff edge…i don’t THINK it is considered a knit row but maybe.

I’ve never counted it as a row, either.

So, since I’m making a scarf that is k1 p1, with the one row of knit because of the cast on, would you do one row if knit stitches at the end and THEN bind off?? Or would you just k1 p1 and bind off and call it a day??

If you want a plain ‘row’ at the end, knit as you bind off.
