Not sure what you mean.

Above would be 4 rows. Knitting the next row, off the left ndl, would give you 5.

So hold the needle in your left hand and count the v's. In cam's diagram there are 4 rows of v's and she is about to start her 5th row. (BTW - sorry for calling you a she if you're really a he cam You never know) __________________

I am fairly new to knitting. I taught myself crochet, and a friend taught me how to cast on and knit, but I'm still struggling.

Welcome to our world I taught myself to knit too, but being as I work full time and had 2 kids (one's off on her own as of 2 months ago and the second is now a senior in high school) I haven't had a chance to knit as much as I would like so I still have a ton of learning to do myself I haven't tried crochet yet, but its becoming more and more obvious to me that I will one day have to learn at least the basics so I can do a crochet border or something
