Counters Set-up

A few examples to help you configure your counters at best while following a pattern

Colors

An example showing how to use the Row Counter App features, to follow regular color switch

Example of Pattern Instructions

Material: Yarn X in Color 1, Color 2

Change color every 6th row

Counter Set-Up

Main Counter

Follows your global progression

You can add in the counter settings the total number of rows of your project (the part of your project that you are knitting, i.e. a sleeve).

=> Increment the counter each time you complete a row

Secondary Counter

Follows your color switch

- Reset after #6

- add a comment to appear at #1 : "change color"

- Is by default linked to the global counter. leave this option enabled, that way when you increment the global counter, the secondary counter will increment as well

Increases / Decreases

An example showing how to use the Row Counter App features, to follow regular increases or decreases

Example of Pattern Instructions

Every 4 rows: Make 1 stitch on each side, 2 stitches from the edge. Repeat 5 times

Counter Set-Up

Main Counter

Follows your global progression

You can add in the counter settings the total number of rows of your project (the part of your project that you are knitting, i.e. a sleeve).

=> Increment the counter each time you complete a row

Secondary Counter

Follows your increases

- Reset after #4
- check the box "show number of resets" (so that you know when you have repeated the increase 5 times)  

- add a comment to appear at #1 : "Make 1 at 2 stitches from the edge, on each sides"

- Is by default linked to the global counter. leave this option enabled, that way when you increment the global counter, the secondary counter will increment as well

Row Sequence

An example showing how to use the Row Counter App features, to follow your repeats of row sequences

Example of Pattern Instructions

-----

Row 1: *k3, p1*

Row 2: knit

Row 3: knit

Row 4: knit

Row 5: *k1, p1, k2*

-----

Counter Set-Up

Main Counter

Follows your global progression

You can add in the counter settings the total number of rows of your project (the part of your project that you are knitting, i.e. a sleeve).

=> Increment the counter each time you complete a row

Secondary Counter

Follows your repeats of row sequences

- Reset after #5
- check the box "show number of resets" (so that you know when you have repeated the pattern 10 times)

- add the following comments:  
- a comment to appear at #1 : *k3, p1*
- a comment to appear at #2 to #4 : knit to end
- a comment to appear at #5 : *k1, p1, k2*

- Is by default linked to the global counter. leave this option enabled, that way when you increment the global counter, the secondary counter will increment as well

Stitch & Row Sequence

An example showing how to use the Row Counter App features, to follow your repeats of a combination of stitches & row sequences

Example of Pattern Instructions

-----

Row 1: *k1,p1* repeat 4 times, knit 20, *k1,p1* repeat 4 times

Row 2: purl

-----

- check the box "show number of resets" (so that you know when you have repeated the pattern 20 times)

- add the following comments:
----- to appear at #1 : *k1,p1*
----- to appear at #2 : *k 20*
----- to appear at #3 : *k1,p1*
----- to appear at #4 : *p to end*

=> increment the secondary counter each time you complete 1 stitch sequence.
