I'm in desperate need of some help ripping back a pattern that has some lace-type work. I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to any kind of ripping back, let alone when it comes to the YOs and such.
This is the pattern I'm trying to work: http://www.mosaicyarnstudio.com/pdf/DiamondLeafCowl.pdf
I made the mistake of trying to work it at a time when my concentration was not great. Got off count somewhere and need to rip back a couple rows. Every other row is straight knit, so I'm hoping to rip to one of those rows but I'm concerned I won't pick it back up right. I tried ripping back to the last knit row but I just got the stitches back onto the needles however I could so there are some that are twisted and some that are not. Can't tell what's what with the YOs, etc. It was a lot of work to get as far as I did for a beginner like me so I hate to have to rip it ALL out
Is there anything I can do to make it easier?? Any tips for figuring out how to rip back such a patter? ANYTHING!! I'm on a time crunch to get this done for a gift.
