How to Fix a Dropped Stitch
Step 1: Get your crochet hook, and pull up the stitch so that you have room to put your crochet hook in.
Step 2: Insert the crochet hook from the front towards the back. Each bar above the dropped stitch is a row that has been dropped. Here the stitch has been dropped three rows.
Step 3: Using the crochet hook, pick up the bar closest to the dropped stitch.
Step 4: Pull the bar through the stitch. Now there are only two bars above the stitch left to pick up!
Repeat Steps 3-4 until you have picked up all the bars.
Once you've finished picking up your dropped stitch it's important that you put it back on the needle correctly. Put the right leg in the front, and the left leg in the back.
Now you are ready to continue knitting!
We all drop stitches from time to time, even the most experienced knitter! Knowing how to get yourself going again is an invaluable skill. Feel free to share this technique with others and let us know if you have any techniques you would like us to share.
