How to fix mistakes in a Mock Turkish Stitch
Help!!!!!

I'm working on my first non-scarf project -- a "wrap" (which I realize is really just big scarf!). I'm using Tokyo yarn (very fun) and am a little freaked out that I have 8 skeins of the stuff.

I've started and restarted this project (http://secure.elann.com/showfreepattern.asp?Id=46024) several times. The worst was frogging it after I found a dropped stitch just moments before finishing the first skein. (ARGH!!!)

My question is this: How do you fix mistakes with a stitch like this? If I spot a mistake in a "regular" stitch (garter or stockinette) I can easily unravel and slip my needle back in. But, with this stitch (which is basically a bunch of yo and knit2tog), I can't for the life of me figure out how (or where) to slip the needle back in.

This is very hard to explain via a wordy post, I know. But, I hope you get the idea. I welcome any help you can offer.

Meanwhile, I'm knitting SO carefully...which is VERY stressful!

Thanks,
Mary
