Hello again to some,
I was knitting a 22 stitch knit-purl-knit scarf and I was trying to knit in another ball of the same yarn. However, a chunk of the tail of the old yarn ripped off before I could knit it in.
I was nearly at the end of my row when I decided to do an emergency knit in of the 2nd ball of yarn.
By combining the tail of the first yarn and of the new yarn, I barely knitted and purled my way onto the new row. Unfortunately, I was forced to knit the last stitch (it should be purled).
I continued to knit and purl the next row. Then I discovered that though I knit-purl-knit the 22 stitches like usual, the knits and purls have switched places in my scarf.
How can I switch back the places of my knits and stitches?
Should I undo the rows of stitches through tinking?
(That would be hard considering that I had to add another ball of yarn at my mistake point so it might come unraveled. It was a very thin, nearly dead and wispy tail that I barely used. Should I go before that point and add in the yarn when the tail was longer and stronger?)
Thank you in advance.
