Ch. 14 Fixing Mistakes 201

Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting For This Project

Accidental Yarnover

If you accidentally forget to do a yarnover, or maybe do one at the end of the row instead of (or in addition to) at the beginning, the best way to remedy that on this project is to take out a row or two.

Don’t panic. We’ll do it together.

If you need to take out just a few stitches, you can review the video on how to back up your knitting (called “tinking,” for “knitting” spelled backwards) that we did during the chapter on ribbing.

Take Out Rows

If you find a mistake a few rows down in your knitting you’ll need to take out those rows (or, as my friend Brittany euphemistically puts it, “back up a little”).

Here’s how to do it properly and get going again without getting confused.

Get Sts Back on the Needle the Right Way

If you are having trouble getting your stitches back on your needles facing the right way, don’t worry. It’s time for a lesson in recognizing if they’re on right, and the quickest trick to fix it if they’re not.
