Thanks in advance for your help!
Technically you could. But I'd have to say that what you ultimately decide to do depends on several factors. Some of which are: your tolerance for things not being "just so," how badly the extra knit row interrupts the pattern stitch, and your gauge.

If you're a perfectionist you may want to try to figure out where the error is, and rip back to correct it, because as it is now your pattern stitch is on the WS of your fabric.
