Smart Counters provide a way to keep track of repeats and additional instructions such as shaping while you are knitting from written or charted instructions with a one-tap marker*. There are 2 types of Smart Counters, Row Repeats and Shaping Counters. Show Me
- Row Repeats are used when you need to repeat a subset of rows a certain number of times before continuing on Show Me
- Shaping Counters are used to keep track of additional instructions such as shaping, placing buttonholes, changing yarn colors etc Show Me
* Make sure you are adding Smart Counters to the written or charted instructions for your fabric pattern. If your fabric is simple such as garter or stockinette it may not have a one-tap marker. In this case Linked Counters are a better fit. Smart Counters are best for patterns where the fabric pattern rows are written or charted. The fabric might be lace, cables, texture, color work, etc. Learn More about fabric patterns.
