How do I skip numbering until the beginning of chapter 1 with scrbook?

I'm using something alone the lines of

\begin{document}
\pagestyle{empty}
\pagenumbering{none}
\maketitle
\tableofcontents
\pagestyle{headings}
\pagenumbering{arabic}
\chapter{My first chapter}

in the beginning of the book, but the table of contents is still numbered, so chapter 1 is on page 3. How do I completely skip numbering until the beginning of chapter 1?

I don't know about \pagenumbering{none}. On the other hand, the combination of \pagenumbering{gobble} and \cleardoublepage\pagenumbering{arabic} does what you want. (Note that \pagenumbering also resets the page counter to 1.)

\documentclass{scrbook}

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}

\pagestyle{empty}
\pagenumbering{gobble}

\author{Me}
\title{My work}
\maketitle

\tableofcontents

\cleardoublepage
\pagestyle{headings}
\pagenumbering{arabic}

\blinddocument

\blinddocument

\blinddocument

\blinddocument

\blinddocument

\blinddocument

\end{document}
