Crochet and Knit Counter helps you keep track of the rows while you're working on your project, and is greatly accessible for users of voice-over.

Simply tap almost anywhere on the screen and track your rows. Need to repeat the same count a number of times? This app let's you do exactly that!

Working on multiple projects simultaneously? No problem, just create multiple projects, and give each of them their own name.

Prefer to work in silence? Use the option to turn of the tap-sound, easy! 

Don't like the color theme of the app? Change it, there are many different options to choose from, and if you become a supporter of the app, the icon will also take on the color you select!

Oh, and don't worry about your screen turning off, as it will stay on while you are using the app, without draining your battery!

Use the widget on the today view for maximum convenience!

If you have suggestions or complaint, use the email button top-right in the app to contact me directly.

What others said:

"If you need a simple counter, this is the app for you. It’s simple and easy to use. I’ve tried others but keep coming back to this one." - Lunanator

"It’s so simple but perfect. I can keep all my project counts in one place!" - Anna706

"I do one project at a time that would require a counter. This is the first I’ve seen that is really easy! I love it!" - nurse195829

"I am a totally blind knitter and use voiceover to read my iPhone screen. I have long wanted a row counter that was accessible to me. I found it! Works perfectly, and the sounds confirm that I have added or subtracted a row. The only thing that voiceover users want to know is that you need to double tap the pencil icon in order to make the project name text field active. This app is moving to the front page of my home screen! Thank you! Simplicity often means accessibility to me. Awesome!" - ThaiFoodLady

"Its simplicity is great" - hsbz. hsn

"i got it because i always forget to keep track of my stitches... it was so easy to use, i didn’t like the noise it made when you clicked it but i just turned it off. i also love how your able to choose what color you want!" - milembh

"After trying several counter apps, this is by far by favorite." - H408

"I was looking for a counter app. Nothing fancy as I didn’t was one that took up a lot of memory on my device. Thus app is PERFECT. It’s super easy to use and a bit customizable too. If you are looking for a basic counter app, look no further. Thus app will meet your needs!" - JB45840

What’s New

Version 2021.101

Corrected an issue where the new repeat counter would misbehave when switching between projects.

New in Version 2020.1:`
- Repeat counts are here! I think I found a way to keep the app easy to use while still providing repeat counts. And, if you don't want or have a need for repeat counts, you can turn the repeat counts off entirely in the settings screen. Feel free to let me know what you think by using the mail-icon in the top-right op the app, use the email button top-right to contact me directly.
- I've greatly improved accessibility for users of voice-over (please let me know if there are things that can be improved, again: use the email button top-right to contact me directly)
- I've made the layout nicer in various places, taking more properly into account the layout of iPhones without a home button

Simple to use, very basic

Nice app. Just a very basic counter for simple projects. If you need to keep track of more than just your rows, then this is not the app for you.

The only thing is that the widget does not work for me. I get a message on the widget that says to open the app first for the widget to work. I open the app, and keep the app open in the background, and the widget still will not work and I still get the same message. I would close the app and try again and it just will not work. I was a bit disappointed with that.

EDIT: Thank you to the developer for your response. I ended up taking your advice and uninstalled/reinstalled the app and the widget is now working! I did have 2 projects started, but it was easy to just write down the counts then create the projects and tap until I reached the row I left off on.

Hi DeniesReality,

Thank you for your honest review, great to hear that you enjoy the app. I am sorry to hear that the widget does not work for you, this unfortunately happens to very few people. In most cases, tapping a few rows in the app will make the widget work. If that is not the case, it pains me to say that the only other option is to delete the app and re-install it. Note that this will cause your projects to also be deleted.


Yaaaat!...found it!

I know that many who have reviewed are asking for more and more features. Even though I respect that I hope you keep it simple. My iPad is pretty cramped I try to keep the usage and storage down and every counter app that I tried had gobs of features and stuff that I didn’t use. All I wanted was a simple project tracker Rows, namelabel, I’m using the color selection for the main color of my work. I love it it is so simple and quick and yes, the only other useful feature would be a photo import of a pattern page on the selected project page....see?...we always want more,..but that would put everything you need in one spot...(well, project notes would allow you to record yarn and hook/needle used, etc..) mgbs going up ....😀

Love this app!!

i recently started learning how to crochet, and especially when working in the round, i always found it difficult to keep track of my rounds. i’ve tried other row counter apps, but none of them have the simplicity that this one has. it’s very simple to use. i love how you can have multiple counters for different projects. one thing that i would love to be added to the app would be to have the option to add multiple counters to a single project. but other than that, it’s very simple and easy to use, and i love how you can change the color theme of the app.
