Repairing a hole in stockinette stitching


I’m new to this forum, and I’m looking for advice on how to fix a hole that I made in my hand-knit sweater. The hole has not run, but several stitches are already missing. Any suggestions?


Check to see if you’ve dropped a stitch. If its just a plain old hole of unknown origins though, think about using duplicate stitch to fix the hole. Here is how you do duplicate stitch over other knitting.

When you fix the hole, just do the duplicate stitch over the hole. It will blend in with the other knitting.
