uh oh -- mistake?
Hi everyone!

I just finished knitting a hat and realized that I made a mistake! I'm looking for some help...

I remember having dropped a stitch when changing over from circular to double pointed needles, and I followed a youtube video to get it back up on the needle. However, after continuing for a few rounds, I realized that I fixed the dropped stitch incorrectly, as there's a little "ladder" between the two stitches on either side of where I dropped it. If I understand correctly, this means that my dropped stitch actually fell through the next row down (right?) and then I pulled it back onto the needle without fixing it through the row it had gone through. Confusing???

Anyway, the little "ladder" I was mentioning is on the "wrong" side of the fabric, and it only looks a LITTLE icky on the "right" side. I've already closed up the hat by drawing the yarn through the top few stitches and woven in my ends.

My question is... does this matter? Other than it looking a bit funny, will my whole project unravel on me???? Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!!!
