The simple counters are the 6 colored counters bottom right on the main knitting page. To use the counter, tap on it to adjust by one. There is a dot either above or below the counter that indicates if it increments or decrements. You can also change their color, label, and settings. There is both a quick edit option and a full edit option:
Quick Edit is done from Knit Mode. Long-tap (aka touch and hold) on the counter and a window opens so you can see the counter name, frog back one, or reset the counter.
Full Edit (kCEssentials): To change the counter settings, switch to Edit Mode. Show Me
