I often make this same mistake and take out back to the mistake to fix it. I wonder if I can fix it when it is discovered on the subsequent row. I make it when knitting (not purling).
When I get to the mistake, I see that I have passed the stitch from the left needle to the right without working it, but there is also a yarnover in the same place. Can I just take the yarnover and pull it through the non-worked stitch instead if taking out to that point?
