Don't worry, we'll show you how to pick up dropped stitches
Knit happens, but don't let it stress you. In this easy to follow video tutorial we will show you how to get the dropped stitch back up to the needle so that it is ready to knit again. Tip! Using a crochet hook makes this a lot easier.
Here we'll walk you through how to fix a dropped stitch.
Start with the knit side facing you, your knitting may look something like the example to the left.
Insert a crochet hook into the dropped stitch. If you don't have a crochet hook to spare, you can make do with a pencil or maybe even another knitting needle, but a crochet hook makes this a lot easier.
With the crochet hook within the last stitch of your vertical drop, grab the horizontal bar above this stitch with the crochet hook.
Pull the tab above through the stitch on your hook. Repeat this for every horizontal bar until you get back to the rest of your knitting.
Slip the stitch back from the crochet hook onto your the needle on the left.
And by that, you have learned a super useful skill and fixed a dropped stitch. Wasn't too scary was it? OK maybe a little, but with practice comes perfect. Keep knitting Gang!
