Sublime newbie

Very basic question on a Sublime pattern:
1st Row: Knit
This row forms the garter stitch.
Work 3 rows in garter stitch.

My question is “do you work 3 or 4 rows in garter total.”

(Drat, my reply vanished.)
I’m not sure, but my gut instinct would be 3 more rows. When you finish and turn, that would put you back on the same side as the first row. It wouldn’t matter that much unless you’re using really big yarn or making something really tiny.

What are you making?

I also thought that it may not matter, but since I am a new knitter, I may not know when it is important! LOL
I’m looking at the Little Constance cardi.

I agree with Becky. It’s not very clear but I’d go with 3more rows too. If this is the beginning of the cardi, at the hem, it looks like 4 knit rows total.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. I am so uncertain when reading patterns,that it has prevented me from knitting. I have vowed to conquer this fear with the help of this site…and a bit of common sense. :slight_smile:
