Use the videos on this site....watch them as many times as you need to, and then try fixing it.
I know they've done me a world of good, and sometimes I have to watch them as I'm trying to fix a "boo-boo". For me, visual is always better than reading, but not everyone is that way.
Good luck!!!

Hi!
with a lot of stitches it can be tricky to recreate. With 3 rows, I personally would not bother but start over. If the 1/4 of stitches lie next to one another, you will probably see uneven stitches after repairing (assuming we talk of a considerable number of stitches total).

But really: learn the fixing (for example in the videos up top) because sooner or later you will need it. When you walk you stumble sometimes. So fixing mistakes is a good skill to learn.
