My son wore his wool sweater on a ski trip and now he has decided it needs to be two inches longer. Yikes! I have not done this before so I am a little, nervous. I want to take the ribbing off and add two inches to the body. So, from what I have read on this site I should put in a needle in a destination row snip the first stitch at the bottom and pick it all out.
My question is, once I snip that first stitch do I have to pick out every stitch or will it unravel? Once I pick out a few stitches can I just knit it backwards? Is there a better way of doing this? I guess I am looking for assurance that it is not that hard. Any tips?
