W O W had to share row counter

ok first off… not my idea :teehee: wish it was any how here it is!
make your own row counter!!
just wanted to share :happydance:

I prefer the bracelet one on Craftster recently with different beads on elastic, where one type of bead keeps track of the 1s column, the other the 10s. But I like her idea to attach it in such a way that she can’t neglect to count.

Could you share the link to this project or where in the Craftster forums this idea is?

Thanks!

I made something like that using jump rings and seed beads. Each ring has 1,2,3 etc seed beads, and they are all liked together in a chain. When I get to the chain, I just slip my needle in the next ring down.

[color=indigo]I didn’t put seed beads on mine, I hung a charm at the bottom so I work down the row of rings to the charm. I love using the split rings as I can easily add and remove them for the number of rows I need to count. I used this one before I had a charm, so I used a colored stitch marker as my “bottom.” In this picture I’m on row six of eight rows.[/color]

After some searching, I found it…thanks anyway.

Before I understood hyperlinks on other boards I frequent, I always wondered why something was discussed but not linked until I realized the links were within the posts in different colored letters. Most people on this board post hyper-links, that is, a title or words that describe the linked item. On this board, the hyper-links happen to be blue.

If you go back to the original post & click on the blue words that state:

“make your own row counter!!,”

You’ll end up at the page in question. HTH

I used that trick when I knit Dashing last week. Most of the row counts are in multiples of 9, so I made my chain 9 loops long. It worked perfectly! I like that you can customize it to your pattern that way.

What a great idea! Thanks for sharing! :cheering:

I will make some tatting chaines for me :cheering:

Thank you for sharing. I like the idea :slight_smile:

Tewzers was asking for the link to the Crafster page that redwitch mentioned, not the link Jeanius postaed. :wink:

I’d like to see it, as well!

Thanks, but that wasn’t the link I was referring to. I was looking for the bracelet link in the Craftster Forum.

Here’s a link to what I was able to find on the Craftster Forum

Thanks, those are brilliant!

Very girly, though.

Those bracelet counters and such are cute, but I’ve always wondered why people don’t just use these Universal Counters? That’s what I use. No muss, no fuss… no instructions. :slight_smile:

That is the one I use, unfortunately it’s only as reliable as the operator :wall:
