So I'm working on the button bands for a cardigan for my little girl. (Almost done! It was supposed to be for winter, but took me a little long. It'll have to be a spring cardi!) After I'm done picking up a row of stitches to begin knitting for the button band, does that count as a knitted row? I'm supposed to knit 8 rows, but am not sure if I count that one?

I've heard the tip for bands in a different colour: always pick up the stitches in the background colour, then start knitting your coordinating colour band. There I'm pretty sure I wouldn't count the pick-up as a row, but Milinda is right, what looks best is the real answer.

Thanks for the tips. For this project I just went ahead and didn't count it and it seems fine! It's one of those things I've always wondered. :)

The pick up is like a cast on. I do not count it as a knitted row. What you do is your choice.

For me, it would depend on how it looked. If you like how it looks counting the pick up row as one, then it works. I tend to do that, go by what pleases my eye and what looks right.
