Di not understand

need help what does the pattern mean by ridges?

what does the pattern say, exactly? can you cut and paste the line you’re having troubles with (as well as a few lines before and after to give us context)

Hopefully we can answer better that way.

Knit 5 ridges (10 rows) garter stitch

the pattern that I am using is on the web site under free patterns

Sand Stitch Cotton Towel and Cloth Set.

When you knit garter stitch (knit every row), it forms a bumpy ridged fabric. Each ridge is made of two knit rows. It is one way to count how many rows you have done.

thank you
