Hello

I’m trying to figure out a pattern with an odd number knitting chart. I’ve figured out that the purl row is a repeat of the knit row.

The pattern states to work 4 rows before increasing. I’m confused how to count the rows. The chart looks like I count the knit row and the purl row as 1, or do they count as 2 rows?

The pattern is the Ellen top in the Rowan no 67 book.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
