Same mistake
I have not made this mistake in along time but when i do i cant for the life of me remember how to correct it.

I finished a row and turned my circular needles around. I am knitting (garter). When i went to stitch the first stitch i noticed the 2nd stitch had the ball of yarn attached not the first stitch.... So how do i knit the first stitch?? I am not knitting flat not in the round.

Last time i did this i thought i wrote the answer down and made a copy. If i did i am unable to find it and Amy does not have this mistake on her video's that i can find.. I know this is a common mistake and so wish she would of added to her list of mistakes on the videos.....
Thank you to those that answer...

Anne

This may not be right, but when I get this, I usually just turn back the other way, slip it to the empty needle and 're-knit' it. I figure that if the yarn isn't attached to it, it hasn't been knit.

It will be good to know if I'm wrong and what I SHOULD do.

I agree with Wenda. It sounds like when you were finishing your row, the last stitch just got slipped instead of knit.

Would happen to me as well from time to time, leaving me wondering what happened. But I have discovered that I can transfer that last stitch back to the other needle and re-knit it, as was said already. Should fix the problem

When I taught my grandchildren to knit that is what would happen to them. I would show them to put the stitch back and reknit it. It happens all the time and what everyone has said is what I do also.

That's exactly what I do as well.
