I was in the market for a new pattern, so I ordered this Herrschners Susan Bates Digital Row Counter. It arrived quickly and was easy to set up on my laptop. This is such an inexpensive tool, that I decided it would be good idea to share with you how well it works out of the gate. When your project becomes too big or complicated, then you can simply stop knitting at any time without having to re-do all those rows!

The Herrschners Susan Bates Digital Row Counter is a digital row counter with an easy-to-read LCD display. It includes an auto shut off for maximum battery life and also has stitch markers that let you keep track of your current position in pattern or project to save time when knitting.
I found 23 customer reviews at the time of writing and they had awarded the Herrschners Susan Bates Digital Row Counter 4.5 stars out of a possible 5 on average.,
The customer reviews on Amazon are positive overall, but there were a few niggling points raised. One person said it “didn’t work as well as I had hoped,” while another complained about having difficulty getting it set up correctly due to its lack of instructions. In contrast, other customers said things like: “A great tool for any knitter””; “works so much better than my old one!”; and finally, “This makes knitting way easier.” The only real problems from people seem to be minor ones such as ‘not being able to see numbers/letters clearly’ which seems more anecdotal evidence rather than something widespread enough that I would recommend not buying this product because some people can’t read small text properly!


The Herrschners Susan Bates Digital Row Counter is one of the best and most accurate digital row counters on the market. It has a large display and it’s easy to use, making this an excellent tool for both beginners as well as experts.
