Help! Counting Rows in Ribbing

I am new to knitting from a pattern (I’ve just been making scarves until now - got to love those rectangles!) and it didn’t occur to me to count my rows as I went and now I don’t know how many rows I have knit. I’m working on ribbing and I’m not sure if I should count the holes or something else to figure out where I am (I do know that I shouldn’t count my cast on as a row, though thanks to searching in this forum).

Any help would be appreciated!

Count the number of 'V’s on the RS (yes, don’t count the CO).

–VV–VV
–VV–VV
–VV–VV

Above would be 3 rows.

Yes, you count the Vs, but like you said you can think of it as the holes in the middle of the Vs as well. That is what I usually do.

I count the bumps :shrug: either way, whichever is easier for you.
