Row Counter Plus $30.00
The Row Counter Plus is
made in the Philippines for Nancy's Knit Knacks by a leading
Japanese electronics supplier.
Here is how the Row Counter Plus
The unit has 3 counters on the
display. Each counter is numbered (1, 2 or 3). In the picture
above, the large "0" count is the #1 counter and is in the "active
zone" (the zone which the user is currently counting) and this number
can be added to or subtracted from. The other two counts that are
represented by smaller "0"s are in the inactive zones. To move one of these numbers into
the active zone, the user simply depresses the small gray button to the left
of the large green button. This button "rotates" all three
counts in a clockwise direction one position at a time.
To turn the unit on or off, press the
Gray button marked with the letter "S" for 3 seconds.
user's data is automatically saved when the unit is turned off.
Pressing the large green button
Adds to the count, and the smaller Yellow button Subtracts from the
The smaller Red button in the upper
right is the Reset button which resets to 0 any number that is in the
active zone when it is depressed. This button also turns off or on the
electronic beep tone if it is held down for 3 seconds.
This new and improved version of our Plus unit can
now be turned off. When the user turns the unit off, their data is
automatically saved and cannot be lost. The user can turn off the unit
by pressing the small gray button (marked with an "S" in the upper left
corner) for 3 seconds. The unit will then be tuned off and the user's
data will be saved. To turn the unit back on, they press the same button
for 3 seconds and the unit turns on.
How is it actually used?
You could start counting ROWS with
the number 1 counter. Let's say you have a repeat in your pattern every
10 rows. You start counting your rows with the #1 counter. When you
reach 10 in the #1 counter, you ROTATE the numbers one position
clockwise until the #3 counter comes into the active zone. This will be
used as your REPEAT counter. You then add 1 to this counter meaning you
have completed 1 repeat.
You then ROTATE the counters TWICE
so that your #1 counter is back in the active zone. Since this will
still have a count of 10 in the display, you RESET this number to 0 and
then resume counting your rows again until all of your repeats are
The whole process goes very
quickly once you learn the sequence which is not complex at all.
