I am knitting red, white, and blue scarf with wide horizontal stripes in a complicated bumpy rib pattern. Each stripe is 24 stitches in 16 rows. I accidentally skipped one of the white stripes, and I don’t want to un-knit what I’ve done. Is there a way to separate the blue stripe from the red stripe, knit the white stripe, and then reattach the blue stripe onto the white stripe?
I have not woven in the tails yet, so there’s a loose slip knot and a few inches of yarn at the beginning/end of each stripe. The first row of the pattern is P2 K2 to end. The last row of the pattern is K1 P1 to end.
