Marking And Keeping Track Of Rounds And Pattern Repeats

Some knitters struggle to keep track of where they are in a pattern repeat, or how many rounds have been worked with circular knitting. There are many useful tools to assist you, as well as indicators in the actual knitting. To keep track of the beginning and end of the round, use a split ring marker or knotted loop of scrap yarn to indicate the first stitch of the round. If you lose the marker, the location of the tail that is left over from casting on is also a good indicator of the join. Row counters are helpful in recording the number of rounds that are knit. If your project involves stitch patterns and cable panels, you can mark the beginning and end of repeats with split ring markers. Attach them to the first and last stitch of the repeat.
