KNITFreedom - How To Darn Socks And Mend Holes In Knitting To mend a hole in knitting, first clean up the edges as best you can by trimming ends that are sticking out. Use a crochet hook to re-knit any stitches that have fallen out. Using a tapestry needle, weave a thin thread through the stitches vertically to create some structure. Then, cut as many pieces of yarn as you have rows missing. Weave one end of yarn horizontally through the thin threads. Then use a crochet hook to re-knit that row of stitches. Repeat for as many rows as are missing. Finally, use a tapestry needle and your yarn to graft the last row of stitches closed.
