I messed up, need help!

I’m knitting on circular needles, and I checked the back to see how it was looking. I noticed I have a stitch out of place; it’s just a straight 1/2 inch long piece of the yarn hanging out. Problem is, it’s about 5 rows down. How can I fix this?

Thanks!

Is it a dropped stitch?

I’m not sure, but I’d guess it is.

Knit or unknit, to the st over where the loop is. Then use a crochet hook, or just a needle tip to pick up the stitch. There’s a video on the Tips page under Fixing Mistakes.
