I have more stitches than suppose to...
Hi my favorite knit forum gals,

I am doing that hat with the stitches on three DP needles. I am counting stitches frequently to keep track of what I'm doing so as to find mistakes faster and I noticed I am adding an extra stitch. I think when I go to start a new needle I am wrapping around the needle I just came off from first and it adds an extra stitch to that needle. I have found that three times so I just knitted two together. Is that the way to handle it to get back to the right number of stitches and is there something I can do to position the needles so I don't do that OR will that just come with paying more attention and experience.
I'm enjoying my knitting time BUT I really must get back to that Christmas quilt but can't seem to. LOL.
Thanks again for your help,
Susie

Yeah...I think you just need to make sure the yarn is in the right position when you start on the next needle.

Kelly,
If I find out where the right position is I'll let you know. LOL.
Then it was ok to pick up two stitches at a time to fix the one too many thing?
Have a nice day and thanks.

Susie

Sure! Unless you dont like the way it looks...

If your piece is being knitted in all stockinette stitch, then your yarn should never come between the needles to the front of the work.

Hi Susie,

Yes, you can just knit 2 tog to get back to the correct number of stitches.

If you're doing an inadvertent yarn over when you go from needle to needle, you may find you get a hole or eyelet right there. (If this doesn't happen, just ignore me) You could either fix it, OR make it a "hand-knit design feature".

Happy Knitting :XX: :XX:

Mary
