I only recently learned to knit, and after wandering off to a few different projects I’m finally finishing the scarf I first started on. Because I was just learning and didn’t really think I’d ever finish it, my first stripe (20 rows) is very, very loose and hole-y. My cast on was pretty crappy as well, so I’m concerned that the looseness of the first row will be a problem if it catches on something.
Basically, what I want to do is unpick that first stripe and knit it again. The thought of this makes me very, very nervous! I assume that I’ll need to insert the needle into the 20th row, and then knit it backwards (I was worried that it would mean the sides of the work would get swapped around, but its all knit stitch so it wouldn’t be hugely obvious). Is there an easy way to do this? Do I even have the right approach?
I’m so worried I’ll unravel it and go too far or drop a whole lot of stitches and spoil the other two feet of scarf that are so perfectly formed! :help:
