Keeping track of rows

by ysoldateague June 19, 2014

I learned this little trick from my friend Mel and it’s so helpful for those of us who can never remember if they clicked the row counter. 

After the first 10 rows take a piece of scrap yarn and lay it across your knitting between two stitches. Continue knitting. 

10 rows later pause at the same point and flip the scrap yarn to the back. 

You can easily total up the rows you’ve done by counting the ‘stitches’ of scrap yarn. And if you forget to flip the yarn just grab a darning needle and thread it through where it should have been. Find it hard to eyeball 10 rows? Try doing just 6,

At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
