I'm working on a pair of Jillwalkers right now, and I have a quick question.  If the pattern reads:

Lacey Zigzag Pattern for Leg:
Rnd 1: k all
Rnd 2: *yo, k8, sl2, k1, psso, k8, yo, k1* (repeat to end of the round)
Work these 2 rounds 20 times

At the end of this will I have 20 rows or 40?

40 because you work the 2 round set 20 times.  However, you can go as long or as short as you like.  I knit these guys recently and made 6" cuff... which worked out to some number of rows that I didn't count. 
I find it a lot easier to measure my socks because counting those tiny rows can be very tedious.  Plus I know how tall I want my socks to be, so I knit to that rather than a number of rounds that many not match up.  Just don't go too tall because you can run into problems w/ needing to shape for your calf Smiley 

Good luck!  These are really cute socks (too bad my neighbor put mine in the dryer and then the dryer ate one anyway Sad)

Thanks for the help and encouragement!  I can't wait to see how they turn out Cheesy

It always makes me wonder where socks go when they're in the dryer.  I mean seriously!
