Help With Ribbing Pattern!
Hello!

I'm a fairly new knitter, i started off with dishclothes and have made about 20 by now! I was getting bored so my Mom (a very long time, advanced, amazing knitter) gave me a fairly simple pattern for a Cowl, which is, for those of you who don't know, is like an infinity scarf, pretty much just a circle that you can wrap around your neck a bunch of times. I restarted my cowl at least 6 times and just up until now i have had ZERO problems.

The pattern is a k1 p1 on 131 stitches. I have about 6 inches of this done on circular needles. I think at some point i dropped a stitch, i looked up how to fix it and thought i had it. But once i got to the next row i still had a circular hole in my knitting which lead me to believe that i had somehow done a yarn over. So i went backwards in my knitting, tried to play with it a little more and am now left with something i have no idea what to call or fix. I'll put a picture here, if anyone knows what this is, what i have done, or, hopefully, how to fix it, i would be eternally grateful!!

Thank you

I've somehow managed to fix that mistake, but now i have 133 stitches instead of 131, and there is a slight round hole that looks like a yarn over, is it okay for me to continue on the pattern this way?

You can just go on, a couple of extra stitches won't matter. You can close up any holes you find with a short piece of yarn when you're done, or they might not even show much when you wash or block it if the yarn fills them in.

By the way, this is seed stitch, not ribbing. They both work as k1 p1, but with seed stitch it's offset. Look at the videos on the Tips page under Basic stitches and see the difference.
