When I first learned how to knit, it kind of freaked me out when I dropped a stitch. No matter what time of night it was, I would jump in my car, pajamas and all, drive over to my mom’s house so she could fix it for me. I'm Vickie Howell from DIY’s Knitty Gritty, and I'm going to show you how to fix a drop stitch. Come on down here I’ll show you. There's a couple of different ways that you can do it. Now for this one, we only dropped it one row. So all you need to use is your knitting needles. Take your right hand needle and pick up the stitch from the row below. Then, you're going to want to take the same needle and lift up the bar above it which is your drop stitch. Then you simple just slide the first loop over the second, kind of like you're binding off. And then place that stitch back on your left hand needle. See, all fix. Now, if you drop it more than one row, say anywhere between two and five, there's a better method to fix it. All you want to do is grab a crochet hook, it doesn’t matter what size, because really you just need the hook portion of it. You can see that we've gone several rows down, we find our loop. And from here, we're going to sort of crochet our way back up. You fix one, we go under the next bar which is the next row up. And then we just pull that through the loop. There's two. Go to the next one. There's three. We've just completely pick up a stitch from about 3-4 rows down. Now this works really only up to 5. After that, your tensions in your yarn will going to get weird. Unfortunately, if you drop a stitch more than about 5, 6 rows, you're going to have to do something that we call frogging. Which means you have to rip it out. Don’t worry though, I know it's frustrating when you make a mistake, but hey, it’s only a knitting, people. Have fun with it.
