Hi my name is connie and Iam new to knitting. I have pretty crazy question. The instructions for my project say to knit 4rows on the odd number of rows and purl on the odd number rows.after knitting 4rows and purled the others how many rows will have completed
Thank you

Great that you started knitting.
What is the name of your pattern?
Can you exactly quote a couple of rows of the pattern that are causing the problem? Don’t post a large portion of the pattern due to copyrights, please.

I purchase the yarn “Katia“
at a local shop and the pattern came with it (baby blanket) The first part of the instructions are cast on 153 stitches. Work 4 rows in Garter st, and on alternate rows purl. That is where I am at, but I forgot to keep track of each row as it was completed. I counted counted 8 rows (if I counted correctly).

For garter stitch (knit every row), each ridge counts as 2 rows. For stockinette stitch (knit one row, purl the next) count each V as a row.

Thank you for all your help
