Some people count it as a row, others don't. I count it as my first knit row and start with a WS (purl) row after I cast on. If you look at it closely, you will see that the back and front of the cast on look a little different. See which one you like better, and use that as your right side. That is what Vogue Knitting says to do, and I agree with them.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
