Crochet needle/knit st
Usually when I drop a stitch, I always use a crochet needle to knit it back. How do you purl with it ?

Thanks !

When you pick up a dropped knit stitch, you insert your crochet hook through the front of the dropped stitch and bring the yarn strand through the stitch. For a purl stitch it's the same procedure except that you do it on the wrong side of the work.

And when in doubt, turn your work around. I can never get the purl stitch to look right if I work from the front, so I turn my work around and do a knit stitch on the opposite side. :D

I do too. For some reason I have a hard time getting the "bump" on the purl side when I'm on the purl side. I always pick it up on the knit side and it works fine. :?? I'm strange. :rofling: :rofling:
