Picking up stitches...

If you’ve ever dropped a knit or purl stitch while knitting, it can be so frustrating!  I have been known to unravel the entire piece (dishcloth) and start again.

That was until I discovered the world of helpful tutorials on YouTube...

Here is a link to a very helpful video on picking up simple dropped stitches...

See how you go...I’ve tried it a few times and it works!

  1. Oh, I shall be watching this because I ended up undoing almost the entire washcloth because I couldn't pick up the stitch I'd dropped successfully. With yarn overs and knit two togethers I kept ending up with one stitch less that I was supposed to have. Needless to say, I have put it away and started cutting out pieces for a new shirt instead! Meg;)

  2. Picking up stitches is my little downfall. I have used youtube successfully as well however still have a bit to go. Thankyou for the link as I will go back to that one when I knit another dishcloth.
