Seed Stitch--How to count rows

Good morning!  I am new to your groups and pretty new to knitting (4
scarfs, 1 doll blanket and 1 kerchief under my belt so far).

I am making a hooded baby blanket from a pattern I found at JoAnn
fabrics.  It calls for the first 8 rows to be knit in seed stitch with
two strands of yarn held together.  That wasn't a problem at all.
Unfortunately, I have not yet purchased a row counter and have lost
count of how many rows I knit.  I am really having trouble counting
them due to the thickness from 2 strands of yarn and because this is
my first adventure with seed stitch.  Can anyone offer advice?

Thank you so much for your help!

Count the purl bumps? 4 of them would be 8 rows...

Hi!
If you count the purled 'bumps' you'll find that 3 = 6 rows.
