Consistency is the key.
I think the key to consistency is doing what makes sense to you.
For me "Row 1" on the pattern is the one I flip it to "1" for.
For someone else "1" isn't 1 until it's completed (which strangely is how I count stitches, it's not counted until the loop is pulled off the left needle).
