How to Catch and Fix Dropped Stitches Easily
Guys. I get dropped stitches ALL. THE. FREAKIN'. TIME.
Don't you hate that? When you're working your way through your project, enjoying the process, then BOOM the stitch is dropped and the project is ruined? Bah. Now you've got to start over.
Or do you?
The answer is, of course, a big, fat, NO. You don't need to start over. Stop frogging. Go on. Right now.
The thing with knitting, as with any craft, is that you are bound to make mistakes. That's human nature. I make mistakes in my knitting all the time, and that's A-OK.
It's okay because I taught myself how to fix them. It took me a lot of years, a lot of trial and error, and a lot of naughty words, but I got there eventually. And now I want to make sure you know how to fix those mistakes, so you can get on with knitting confidently!
Once you know how to fix mistakes, making them becomes a whole lot less scary.
As a beginner, one of the most common mistakes we make is dropping our stitches. It fills us with panic. We don't know what to do. And that is assuming we actually spotted it before it dropped, if we didn't we end up with an unsightly hole in the finished fabric!
So, in this video, I'm going to show you how to catch your dropped stitches, pull 'em up by the bootstraps and set 'em back in their rightful place.
I hope you found the video helpful and you now feel confident that you can deal with those dropped stitches!
