To count garter, each bump is a row and each space is a row.

When I count stockinette, I use a needle point and put it in the hole in each v to help me keep track; and when you get to the garter, the first row of purls would be a row and the space between the purls is a row. I don't know of any site that has pictures, though.

You are doing the shaping of the neck with short rows, and you should slip as if to purl--that will create less of a hole. I don't think wrapping will work with this.
