Magic Loop Knitting

If I am knitting with the Magic Loop method, what is considered one round and what is considered one row? I’ve gotten a few conflicting answers…

One row in circ knitting might be considered half a round, meaning until you get to the stitch marker, if you have one. Otherwise, having knit half of the stitches.

One round means having knit all the stitches of that round.

I don’t know if this answers your question

Yeah I think that’s exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

Usually though, you don’t use ‘row’ at all when knitting in the round, even with ML. From beg to end is a round.

Hmmm. Well, this is the pattern I’m trying:

I’m only at the cuff and I just want to make sure I’m knitting a full round/row. Here are the specific instructions that I’m confused about:

[I]Work Rnds 1 and 2 only of cable stitch pattern until 14 rows total have been worked.[/I]
Cable stitch pattern[/B]
[I]Rnd 1: P 1, (K 3, P 1) 3 times. Rpt to end of rnd.
Rnd 2: As Rnd 1.[/I]

…So to work one round in ML I have to go from beg to end on both needles? In other words, half of my total stitches, or one needle, is equivalent to one row?

Yes. It helps if you put a st marker on the needle at the beg of round, and your first st doesn’t need to be at the beg of a needle. When you get to the end of a round, put the marker on then knit a few sts off the other needle to the same needle, then loop it around. This will shift your beg of round so the marker won’t fall off and make it easier to follow the pattern.

Alright, I think I’ve got it now; thanks Sue!
