How many rows?

Now, This is purely hypothetical…if I forgot to keep track of how many rows I was doing, cuz I thought I would surely remember, then got interrupted and then forgot how many rows I just did, how would I count them? Say for garter stitch? Do I count by the ribs on one side or the other? What about St st? Remember…this is purely hypothetical, I would never, ever forget what I was doing…no, seriously.

okay stockinette is easy because you count the Vs.

Garter stitch i have more difficulty with trusting. I always count the ridges on both sides just to be sure, but everybody says that if you have 10 ridges you have 20 rows. i just can’t ever leave it alone and have to look to be sure! :slight_smile:
