Dropped edge stitch

i am working on my first project ever and just discovered that i dropped a stitch several rows down. the stitch is on the edge of the scarf. is it possible to fix this without unraveling and doing those rows again.


I’ve never fixed one on the end but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. Have you checked out Amy’s video on fixing mistakes? It’s on this page about halfway down: http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php

Hey Soleil797 ~ I had the same problem/question with my first project…a baby afghan. I have come to the conclusion that I’ll need to frog (unravel work) to the row where I dropped the stitch (past the dropped stitch) and start over from there :crying: I lost four rows, but I couldn’t figure out how to pick’em back up. Hope that helps :thinking:

I’ve always had this problem with the edges…I totally understand the concept of picking up dropped stitches in the middle of my work, but the edges totally confuse me!

found this today:

hope it helps!

They can be picked up along the edge and the concept is the same as with any other stitch, but it [U]is [/U] harder to learn to do. I have done it, so it is doable. If you haven’t already frogged this and worked from there I suggest you make yourself a little sample swatch (just a tiny thing) and make this mistake and practice fixing it. If you get it figured out try it on your project. I always try to fix something without ripping and if I can’t I can always rip it out, but sometimes I win the battle and it feels great.
