What is the pattern? Stockinette? Ribbing?
Without any details, it could be that you switch your stitching. But one this is for sure, as long as the working yarn was coming from the right hand needle when you came back to your knitting, you can rest assured that you picked up the needles correctly
If you switch your stitching, it's up to you if you want to go back. You could rip out whole rows, then pick the stitches back up when you come to where the knitting is correct. Or you could "unknit" the stitches which is basically taking stitches out one at a time. "Unknitting" is tedious, but it can help you located exactly
where you went wrong. At least it helps me note where I went wrong ... :?
Amy's videos for fixing mistakes might just be what the doctor ordered.
I hope that helped some...
