Stitch counts

Well, first off, to make sure that we're on the same page, I don't include the chain stitches or slip stitches in the stitch counts at the end of each row.

From there, are you consistently getting too many stitches, or too few? If you're always ending up with fewer stitches, I would guess that you're either skipping a space, or closing your rounds too far over. If you're always getting too many stitches, then you might not be closing your rounds far enough over, or are adding an extra space. If you're sometimes over and sometimes under, you might just need practice to consistently place your stitches in the right place.
