I have not made this mistake in along time but when i do i cant for the life of me remember how to correct it.

I finished a row and turned my circular needles around. I am knitting (garter). When i went to stitch the first stitch i noticed the 2nd stitch had the ball of yarn attached not the first stitch.... So how do i knit the first stitch?? I am not knitting flat not in the round.

Last time i did this i thought i wrote the answer down and made a copy. If i did i am unable to find it and Amy does not have this mistake on her video's that i can find.. I know this is a common mistake and so wish she would of added to her list of mistakes on the videos.....
Thank you to those that answer...

This may not be right, but when I get this, I usually just turn back the other way, slip it to the empty needle and 're-knit' it. I figure that if the yarn isn't attached to it, it hasn't been knit.

It will be good to know if I'm wrong and what I SHOULD do.

I agree with Wenda. It sounds like when you were finishing your row, the last stitch just got slipped instead of knit.

I agree with Wenda, it's happened to me, also.

Would happen to me as well from time to time, leaving me wondering what happened. But I have discovered that I can transfer that last stitch back to the other needle and re-knit it, as was said already. Should fix the problem

When I taught my grandchildren to knit that is what would happen to them. I would show them to put the stitch back and reknit it. It happens all the time and what everyone has said is what I do also.

That's exactly what I do as well.
