Stitch correction

Okay, I know someone has to know how to do this. I am very comfortable in dropping a stitch deliberately to “fix” a wrong stitch down the column of knitting. I tried this recently on the outer edge stitch, and found I could not do it there!

How does one drop down to correct something done wrong on the outer edge?


I had to do that, too, and it wasn’t easy. For me it was trial & error and a whole lot of bad words not suitable for a knitting forum. :teehee:
I hope someone else has a good answer to this one.

I can’t believe you even succeeded! I had to rip mine out…

You must be really good! LOL

Of course I can’t find it right now, but there is an instructional website that shows exactly how to fix dropped stitches on edges. I think it was on maybe?

That would be what I’m looking for, if I could figure out how to find it on the web-site. Thanks!

Actually I was really mad. It was a stoopid-easy pattern and I wasn’t about to let it get the best of me. :roflhard:

Found it.

Thank you! That was what I needed. For anyone else out there needing this info, I also found

For what it’s worth, trvvn5, I think yours looks a little easier to understand! I’ll try it first, and if that doesn’t do it, I’ll try the other one. Thanks!

Thanks all!

I can’t say that it looks as beautiful as I would like, but it has been corrected. What I discovered is this:

If the knitter is using a slip the first stitch selvage edge, then just pull the big loop through the slipped stitch once and go on from there.

For the rest of us. hold the big loop outward and use it’s two legs like ladder rungs to work your way up to the top.

Thanks everyone!

Maybe knitty, could have been - I think that’s the address, google for techknitting if it doesn’t come up.
