(Of course, you're not going to ripping back your knitting just re-inserting the needle the way she does.) Once you have the needle inserted, you can cut and pick out the scrap yarn and you'll have live sts on the re-inserted needle. This is going to be easier to do if you use a smaller size needle for re-inserting.
Cute cap!
Thank you! That's good news because I actually know how to DO that! I just wasn't sure since I'll be ripping from the bottom instead of the top. So I insert INTO the cotton round and not the first round with my project yarn?
