How do you count rows? I'm knitting a scarf and just want to get the hang of counting rows. A nice lady at LYN said, you count in 2 (since all I'm doing is knitting...) but what if I wanted to count each row.
Once you get into more complex stuff you can keep a little cheat sheet nearby where you record how many rows you have done with checks or tick marks. Or you can get a fun little gadget called a row counter which you slip onto your knitting needles and you turn the wheels so it will tell you what row it's on.

I'm making a hat on circular needles and didn't want to count rows either (I'm a new knitter, too). I'm using my daughters' small hair rubber bands. Each time I finish a row I slip another one on. I have thicker ones that count as five (so when there's five thin ones on I take them off and replace them with a thick one) I was using a piece of paper to mark off rows, but kept forgetting (and misplacing the paper) Now I just count the rubber bands to know where I am.
