Below is some backstory, but feel free to skip down to the basic question at the end, which I’ll make bold.
Ok, so I taught myself to knit last weekend. I thought I was making a scarf at first, but somehow it wound up being about 4.5 feet across, so I’m calling it a blanket now.
When my project was about an inch in length, I saw that I had messed up some early rows. At this point, I didn’t want to unravel all that I had done, as it had taken quite awhile to get to where I was, and I decided I’d rather have a few screwups than start all the way over. I’m using size 5 needles, so it’s a really tight weave and 282 stitches across (I counted later :P). Also, I started out with straight needles and the process of tightly winding the project around the needles as I knitted (to keep it from being too long for the needles) was also making things take awhile. (I just went and picked up circular needles today, so it’s much easier going now).
Now that I’m further along, and don’t seem to have screwed up in about 15 rows :woot: , I’m wondering about the following:
[B]Once finished with my project, can I tink from the starting end to undo all the early rows with mistakes? If it makes a difference, I’m just using the basic knit stitch all the way through. [/B]
[B]Thanks in advance for your help![/B]
