I use different ways depending on what I need. To keep track of what row I'm on in my pattern I often use removable highlighter tape. I just move it down as I change rows and replace when necessary.

Sometimes I use a hash marks to keep track of a certain number of rows. Like if a pattern says to knit 6 rows I make marks ///

On the knitting itself I use markers to separate pattern repeats. I also use linked markers to keep track of rows in between something like cables.

I do the old paper and pencil routine. Print out the pattern. Cross off each row number or the whole line as you complete it. If it's a complicated pattern, do it one section at a time crossing off the segment as you go. I make it a rule never to put my work down unless I have completed a row so I know which row to begin with the next time. Once in a while, inconsiderate people will try to talk to me as I'm working through a difficult part. I will read the directions off or continue counting out loud in a very loud voice so they can hear me. It's my way of saying, Shut up and don't distract me, Stupid.
