1 too many rows

greetings, I’m knitting a k2 p2 ribbed hat with different colored rows. I knitted on 1 row too many, is there a way I can eliminate that row without taking it stitch by stitch? much thanks and blessings

One row won’t make much difference. Just pretend it’s not there and do the next row.


Depends on how wide the stripes are. If the stripes are wide, the difference will be inconspicuous. If they’re very narrow, it may be noticeable.

It also depends on your tolerance for imperfection. If it makes you crazy to know that your hat has a mistake, even one that nobody else will notice, it only takes a couple of minutes to un-knit the row stitch by stitch.
