Fixing a Stitch that is Not Knitted
 
Whenever I'm knitting something, it always seems that I don't notice any mistakes until I've knit quite a few more lines (too many to unravel the whole thing). So my question to everyone is...

How do you fix a stitch that wasn't knit, when I already have continued knitting the project?

Thanks!

There's a few ideas on the Tips page under Fixing mistakes. How do you mean you 'didn't knit the stitch'? Did you just slip it from one needle to another? Don't worry about it, as long as you didn't drop it, it probably got knit on the next row and will be fine as is.

If you dropped it and it's more than a few rows down it won't fix as easily because by then you've worked the fabric w/o it and there is no gap or loose yarn to pick it up again. In that case I just pick up what I can which is only a row or two..then I put a piece of yarn through the loop and weave it in on the back to hold it from dropping more.

Yes, that's what I mean.

Okay! Thank you! (:
